    Asked by jishnujk on July 10, 2016 at 03:02 PM

      Hi in your point of sale template there is this drop-down menu that lets you to select different product. I would like to know if this drop-down menu can be changed to a text box the fill the box automatically when one stats typing( Id like to give codes for different product, so that tey can type it and text box gives names beginning with the alphabet that has entered.)

    It would be really helpful for me if you guide me with the step using the products in the template.
