Previously when I created a combobox to test with Item Property: ["pineapple", "pinecone", "pine", "apple"] I was able to search for "pin" and pineapple, pine, pinecone is return in dropdown or "apple" will show apple and pineapple in dropdown.
Now I connect the combobox to my SP list I was not able to search the same way - I have to type the pattern in exact order else nothing shows up.
My SP list contains the same choices behind it.
Is there a work around for this so that I can search for wildcards ?

I am not sure how to make a gif to give example but hopefully my screenshot can explain.
Here I have a list of branches, there are three options which has "Cross Dock" in them.
When I type in "Cross" nothing shows up:
It only works if I start with exactly the same letters
How can I make it so it doesn't do exact matches and function like your gif example?
Hi @miss_haley ,
Agree with @Drrickryp , however you should not need to do that to get the result. The in filter is not Delegable, although I am surprised your current filter did not work if you have your limit in Advanced Settings set to more than the number of items you are searching.
I have just done a test on a 2000 item drop-down and got a search result as expected. I assume you have "Allow Searching" turned on the in the Combo Box.
@WarrenBelzThanks for testing and replying to me.
I have change settings as you said - but the search still only does exact match from the start. It is strange because few days ago this was working fine. Maybe I broke something in the app - but for the moment I will use the filter solution as I am on a limited time frame to give this solution.
I just started to use power apps so I am unsure how to tackle these problems.
