    Can I add a search fundtion to DropDown field?

    Asked by Geigergroupvic on March 01, 2015 at 11:05 PM

    Hi All I am having trouble with one of my forms I have 500 different numbers in one drop down box for our uses to select one number this is very time consuming to find the one they want and I was wondering if there was a function to search the number the user was looking for or do they just have to type the number in a text box

    select find dropdown dropdown find autocomplete

    I understand what you mean and would like to offer a suggestion what to use.

    I would suggest using our Auto Complete widget.

    It will allow them to type the number and show them a suggestion from your list, so they can type their own numbers, but only select one of the available ones in your list helping you to avoid the errors in numbers.

    Do let us know if that is something that would work for you or if you have any questions regarding it.
