Feature Request: Datalist aka Dropdown with text input


#1

Dropdown with custom input.

Hello, I have a feature request, sometimes you have a list that requires an input when the options are no longer available. HTML5 supports this with the datalist tag. This eliminates the need for jquery to conditionally change a “dropdown” into a text input if “other” is selected in some scenarios.

I propose Semantic-UI make a beautiful, universally compatible input for this type of list. As an example view this answer on StackOverflow

Have you tried the allowAdditions: true dropdown parameter?

allowAdditions : Whether search selection should allow users to add their own selections, works for single or multiselect.

You don’t need an “other” option if the user can just type in their own options. :grinning:
