Hi everyone!
I am currently working on a tool where the user selects different signals from a dropdown menu an then the tool takes the signals and processes them.
The problem is that there is about 150 signals in that drop down menu and I am searching for an option not to scroll down all the signals until the desired is found. SOmething like a search function where I can type parts of that signal (eg. signal is ID_065_SIG03_Accel) and I want to type "accel" to reduca the drop down menu that signals containing that part.
Many thanks in advance for your help!

Many thanks for your help!
The solution you provided is a pretty nice second option in case the other solution cannot handle parts of the strings.

Just confirmed, if you set the "Editable" property of a uidropdown to "on", you get some simple filtering of the Items based on what you type into the dropdown.
