    Thank you for contacting us.

    There is no limit in theory, but different browsers might handle the controls differently. Also, the performance with a huge drop down listing might depend on the device hardware. For example, it is hard to manage huge drop downs on mobile devices.

    You might consider splitting the drop down listing to multiple listings based on some criteria.

    And show created drop downs based on conditional logic.

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.
