An HST component parameter annoted with DropDownList cannot be made 'required' in the UI.
Steps to reproduce:
1. add a required component parameter with DropDownList annotation. For example, in the HAP Christmas Tree component, use:
2. drag the component into a container in a channel
3. edit the component
Expected: the 'dropdown' parameter is marked with an asterisk, and the component cannot be saved without selecting a value from the dropdown.
Actual: the 'dropdown' parameter is not marked with an asterisk, and the component can be saved without selecting any value from the dropdown.
