NOTE: The dropdown menu for the culture is automatically populated with the cultures available for the currently selected site. If Sitefinity CMS is in single site mode, the site dropdown menu is not rendered.

The values of the attributes are scope properties that you define in the MVC widget controller.

sf-selected-item-id Single select only. Stores the ID of the selected item. 
sf-selected-item  Single select only. Stores the serialized information of the selected item.

Get or set the selected site

To specify which site and culture are selected by default, use the sf-site and sf-culture attributes. The attribute values are updated as soon as the user selects a different site or culture from the dropdown menus.
