make combobox as text input to manual input

Hello,

 

I've created a SharePoint list and managed to make a cascading dropdown using ComboBox.  However, i would also like the option where users can input manual values if what they are looking for is not there.

 

On items of the combobox field the formula is Sort(MySPList,cnName), the user can search through the list but I would also like the user to be able to type there own value.

 

Could you please let me know, if there is any solution?

 

Many Thanks

Hi @anna2109 ,

 

Would you like to add a new item into the cnName column when no item is selected but typed in the search area when submitting the form?

 

If so, please try below method:

set Update of this Data Card:

If(IsBlank(Combobox.Selected.Value), Combobox.SearchText, Combobox.Selected.Value)

 

Hope this helps.
