Searchable dropdown


I was wondering if there´s any way to have a searchable dropdown like you can see in the image below.

Thanks a lot.

Have you tried the Search Box element ?

Hi @NigelG,

Yes, but with the search box you don´t see the whole list unless you start typing something.

You know what I mean?

We don’t have this element yet.

Thanks for your reply,

Is it on the list of features, @emmanuel?

Not for the very near future given the list of stuff we want to do first.

Ok, I see,

Would you know how to get this with a workaround or should we wait?

It´s not critical but if it´s coming in a month or so, we will wait.


A repeating group and an input can do it. A month is probably a bit optimistic.

Thanks @emmanuel,

I´ll try that workaround then.


Is there a solution for this request today?

Hello @emmanuel i am brand new in bubble. just a week ago.

I kept searching and learning and what i found to solve that is as you respectively said.

I used a method learnt from @gregjohnkeegan Custom Dropdowns , Thanks for him.

However, He used a static Text to imitate the changes. Meanwhile, i want to use an “Input”.

The solution is valid using “Input” by utilizing the initial value, but that is valid for one selection. For example: if the user, for any reason, finds he/she chosen the wrong choice, then it is not valid since the initial value is already reserved.

I hope to find a solution without paid plugins, Please.

Thank you for you all.

I am also looking for something like this. Have you found a solution in the meanwhile?


@hi_bubble did you ever find a solution for this? I’m trying to do the same thing.
