Lets the user choose from the values 'True', 'False' and 'Unspecified' using a dropdown. The last choice is omitted if the field does not allow null values.

Start value: The value that is preselected in the dropdown. Possible values are '0', '1' and NULL.
Return value: The value that is selected in the list (not the displayed value), i.e. '0', '1' or NULL.
