dropdown option with asterix

i have a drop down enabled on a panel, however since its a dropdown i can choose only one of the entries at a time.
the multi-select does not look that good such that when i do multi-select , the panel size changes when i select a lot of options from the multi select dropdown.

so in question now , is that, can i do a * choice along with some common names on the drop down.

for ex: i have 6 drop down options abang, bbang, cbang, atest,btest,ctest

now when i type in "bang" , i get to see abang,bbang,cbang in the drop down option to choose from.
here i can choose only one of these, but is there a option i can type in *bang and see data for that in a panel ?

Vinay, what you mentioned above are static entires, that works.

but my list in the input is coming from dynamic entires.. so how to make it choose dynamically with asterix..

below is my xml input code..

  <input type="dropdown" token="Site" searchWhenChanged="true" >
    <label>Select Site</label>
    <fieldForLabel>Site</fieldForLabel>
    <fieldForValue>Site</fieldForValue>
    <search>
      <query>index=testindex=-3d@d latest=now |dedup Site|table Site |sort by Site</query>
      <earliest>-7d@h</earliest>
      <latest>now</latest>
    </search>
    <choice value="*">All</choice>
    <default>*</default>
    <initialValue>*</initialValue>
  </input>

Thanks for reply. This does not help my case, can you check the screenshot i attached, the dropdown list is dynamic and i would like to enforce a asterix so that 3 entries are considered.

Basically i need to consider all that contains BANG in the dropdown input..
but i can only choose 1 in that list...
