Search and Auto-complete in Design Studio dropdown box component?

Hi DS Experts,

I'm working on a dashboard where a lot of values will be filtered using dropdown menus (in some cases, over 10,000 values), and am wondering if there's a way to begin typing in the dropdown area, and have it autocomplete based on the values available in the dropdown?

I'm working on DS 1.6, SP4.

Thanks,
David

    Hi David - I attended a Visual BI webcast this week; Visual BI has already developed an add-on for a search box - see http://cdn.visualbi.com/wp-content/uploads/visualbi-extensions-for-sap-businessobjects-design-studio-vbx-user-guide.pdf page 440. It might be worth asking for a free trial, rather than you developing it yourself. Others may have already developed this too - please see https://analytics-extensions.enter.sap for the extension directory

    Hi Tammy,

    Thanks for the quick response! So there's no way to do this in Design Studio without purchasing an extension or developing my own..?

    Hi David,

    You can use the Dimension Filter component that allows you to search via a value help dialogue as shown below:
