I have to use a dropdown with some value from database entity but I need it writable.

If I do not want to choose from list values then I need to write a new value in the dropdown.


Is this possible in web or mobile with any widget or feature.?

Kindly help me regarding this.

Hi Manish,

What kind of application are you developing, Mobile, Reactive Web or Traditional Web? Did you check out all the OutSystems UI Patterns?

Hi Kilian,


I am using Reactive Web.

Can you please let me know that the editable feature is available of not for Dropdown.

Or Is there any auto complete text box?



Hi Manish,

The Reactive Dropdown Search has an autocomplete search, but it does not allow you to freely enter a new value. I think that, in general, you wouldn't want that anyway, as a small typing error would create a new record. What exactly is your use case?
