search option for dropdown

search option for dropdown

  

Hello Outsystems Team,

                                    In a mobile screen am using drop down list which contains 300 values. It Does not have search option , every time users needs to swipe up and down to choose values. Usability is not good.  Can you tell me how to solve that. 

Thanks and Regards,

Saravana


Try using this... worked like charm for one of my web apps... should work for mobile too.

Tushar's suggestion won't work because the widgets used to implement this for a web app are not available for mobile apps.

Take a look at this Forge component which seems to do what you need. Alternatively, you could implement your own component by creating a block with an input bound to an "OnChange" event that performs the search and displays the result in a List. Then, when the user selects an item from the list, you can trigger a block event with an input parameter containing the selected element.

Or just use the Select2 control of WebPatterns
