Form with searchable dropdown box

Hi,

 

I'm creating a form to add new records to the database, one of the cards in that form needs to be a dropdown, but the amount of items in it is way too big and therefore I would need the dropdown box to be searchable.

 

Combobox doesn't seem to be an option as it can't be added to the form.

 

Any way of doing this?

 

Regards

Hi @jbrit2020 

It's possible to remove the text input control (or other default control that appears on the card) and to replace that with a Combo box by adding through the insert menu.

 

Here's an example of where I've configured a searchable combo box control on a card.

Could you perhaps explain why you don't seem to be able to add a combo box to your form?
