Delayed Combo box drop-down

Hi!

Is there a way to delay the Combo box drop-down from appearing until a minimum of e.g. 3 characters are typed into the Combo box? As a way to reduce the size of the drop-down and maybe even speed it up from loading an unnecessary amount of results before any character filtering is applied.

Thanks.

Hi @rhiheu ,

Not that I know of, but if the Items are formed in a Collection (rather than having to make a data source query every time a letter is typed), the speed issue largely goes away.

Hi @WarrenBelz, thanks for the suggestion however unfortunately the data source items are changing every minute with new ones being added and old ones being removed.
