Dropdown with search

How can you customise dropdown so that there is "Type search word here" after hourglass with light text?

It is not immediately understandable what is need for searching the list


Hi @Dino_Novak,

At the moment this isn't possible but we can easily add this feature in one of the future releases. A possible workaround is to use the Placeholder property of the dropdown.

Thanx for update, already using Placeholder property, but still it is a little confusing.
can we somehow make line under hourglass with placeholder a little darker, what property in CSS is this ?

Any plans to add direct search as you type option so that user is not required to click and open dropdown?


meanwhile, you can use css with class ui-dropdown-filter to draw attention.

as example you can write next in you site.css

.ui-dropdown-filter {
border: 1px dashed black;
background-color: yellowgreen;

if it does not work, try

.ui-dropdown-filter-container input {
border: 1px dashed black;
background-color: yellowgreen;
