Hi all,
I hope you are in good health.
I have a k2 extrafield type of dropdown list, which has about 1000 option and growing fast.(BTW: is that a problem?)
Now when my client is adding new item in THE FRONT END he needs to select an option from this list, so it is impossible to scroll down these 1000s of options, is there a way to have a search box for this dropdown list so he can search for the option he needs and then when list is shorting while he is typing, he then selects his option.

Have I explained my self clearly?
Thank you all for your help.

I'm sorry but the drop-down list field was built for normal use cases. 1000 options is not normal :)

You should explore other ways in my opinion, e.g. through a custom K2 plugin perhaps...

If you use & love K2, please take a moment to add your review and rate it
