HTML editable drop-down list control

Hi all,

I would like to use a control on a WebForm that acts like an editable
DropDownList control. The user should be able to select a value from
the list of choices, or type in a new value if no predefined choice is
applicable.

It doesn't appear to me that a DropDownList control is editable.

How would you suggest I accomplish what I want to do?

Thanks in advance for your help.

This is an HTML authoring group for the discussion of HTML. My crystal
ball tells me you may be talking about .net, which would be off topic for
this group. Try posting to a group with framework in the name.

More specifically, aspnet.

I have a particular application that requires reordering objects by drag and drop, and I would like to do this with a web frontend. To be more precise: There are headlines and paragraphs stored in a database, but forcing the editors to put them into a certain sequence by entering a sequence number for every item (or clicking on an "up" button fifty times) would be much too cumbersome. So I want to give them an outline view of the text...

Hi All, I have a web page that presents records in a table, with one row per record.

Now when selecting the item "one word" in both combo boxes, the editable combo box would show "word" while the non-editable combo box would show "one ". I would...
