is it possible to have a single select/dropdown list where the user will type in a name and the option will only show records with that name?
I have a single select with a list of names. Currently when the user selects this input, all the names show.
I want the single select drop down to be blank and only populate with the set up names once the user starts to type the name.
you could try to hold your values in a Tulip Table and use a table aggregation as source for the dropdown.
But this is not “as you type”, this only works after triggering the table aggregation.
You could build a change detector for your input variable with custom widgets but then it starts getting complicated for this use case.
thanks for your reply. I had a review of those links and found them very informative so thank you.
Unfortunately I’m not sure it would solve the problem we are having.
Our app is a basic one where a visitor of the app enters their name and then selects who they are there to see. this is from a drop down select of the variable type “Users”.(Email will then get send to that User saying the visitor has arrived)
As we would have a large amount of Users(30+) we don’t want them all showing when the single select is selected,
is the only way to limit this by filtering out Users into hierarchies like you mentioned?
Is it possible that the Visitors could enter the Users Name in a text input instead of selecting predefined list and then this is compared to the Users table for a matching name, and if matches said User will get the email?
