Why do some dropdowns (classic) have a filter box, and others do not?

Hello,

Why do some dropdowns have a filter box and others don't?

Are there options on the <input type="dropdown"...> tag that needs to be set?

What other options are available for dropdowns?

Thanks and God bless,
Genesius

The ones with an input box are most likely multiselect dropdowns, where you can select more than one option from the dropdown, whereas standard dropdown has no filter.

That is not the case. The searches for both dropdowns are the same inputlookup* file; one dropdown is one field, and the other is the other. But only one of the dropdowns has the filter box.

*Have to use inputlookup and not index because data is originating from dbconnect.

The second dropdown (displays the filter box) is text. The first dropdown is a number (no filter box displayed). I converted to a string (added AAA in front of the number), but this did not work either.

Each dropdown search includes one of these
| search fieldA=$fieldA_from_other_dropdown$
| search fieldB=$fieldB_from_other_dropdown$

I also tried reversing the order of the dropdowns in the dashboard. But this did not fix the issue.

Thanks for any guidance you can provide.

God bless,
Genesius
