Re: ComboBOX search function can only start with the first letter and cannot be retrieved randomly

Hi @Dennis_Qiang 

 

Could you please share more details of your datasource and column?

Could you please change your formula expression as this:

If(Len(ComboBoxName.SearchText)>0,Choices(DataSourceName.ChoicesColumnName))

 

For example:

Re: ComboBOX search function can only start with the first letter and cannot be retrieved randomly

Hi @Dennis_Qiang 

 

Could you please share more details of your situation?

Could you please share one screenshot of your issue?

Do you mean you can only search by the first letter?

For example, if I input no matter the first letter or the middle or the last ones, there will be show the related items in the combobox.

More information:

control-combo-box

 

Hope this could be helpful.

 

Best Regards.
