Drop Down Menu

How do you create a drop down menu that shows you a list options to select from

but also allows you type in your own option...

I have tried creating a static entity but this just allows you to select the option you want

i have also tried autocomplete - this allows you type - but it deosnt save a word typed that is not on the list
Hi Sat,

The Autocomplete widget will allow you to do that, if you implement the correct logic for it.

Have a look at the Chosen component on Forge (http://www.outsystems.com/forge/component/251/chosen/). It will allow you to do both things at once, so this may be what you're looking for.

Best regards,

I am unable to download plug ins ...

However with the autocomplete ....
i have a list of employees i have bootstrapped
i have an autocomplete employee field
when i type an employees name who isnt saved in the database it errors saying please select a valid employee
therefore it does not allow you to save your own values...
