    Hi, I have a question related to Dropdown list in Wijmo grid.

    Is it possible to change the filtering for dropdown list once user type something?

    I would like to filter dropdown list with results which contains dropdown list input.

    I would like to have quite same behavior which we have in AutoComplete, but I don’t want to use the AutoComplete in my case. I would like to add custom behavior of dropdown list input.

    Demo link with current behavior is here:


    I cannot find any information about this case. Can you help?

    Thank you

    We apologize for the delayed response, you may refer to the sample link below demonstrating how you can achieve the desired result in the dropdown:


    In the above sample link, we have handled the prepareCellForEdit event of FlexGrid and attached input and keydown event to grid’s activeEditor to handle the searching behavior and then update the dropdown list accordingly.

    Hi, thank you for response.

    I’m also wondering, if there is a possibility to add a custom dataMapEditor? I would like to create my own dropdown and place it in the cell of the FlexGrid table. Currently, we only have 3 options: DropdownList, Radio Buttons and AutoComplete. Is it possible to add my own options?

    Thank you
