Dropdown Search OutsystemsUI - Event to receive SearchKeyword
Application Type

Hello all,

I need to clone the dropdown search from OutsystemsUI and Add an event to receive the SearchKeyword. Someone already needed to do this?

Thanks, Paulo Torres


Hi Paulo,

You will have to define an event handler on the choices input for the mentioned use case.

Code Changes: DropdownSearch (Webblock) > Init (Client Action) > Init (JS Node)

Based on your use case, you can opt for any of the below-mentioned implementations.

1) Registering input change event handler

    function () {


2) Registering keyup event handler

    function () {

Refer to the attached oml file.

I hope this helps you!

Kind regards,

Benjith Sam


Hello Benjith Sam,

Thanks a lot, you are the BEST.

How I can avoid the search in client side? For example I'll add a boolean as input parameter (IsClientSearch), the goal of this event is to search in serverside.

Thanks a lot

Hello all,

Anyone can help on that?
