Hello there,
Anyone have solution for simple field type text with dropdown support ? basically i need dropdown field type which can be filled also with custom text like this in html :

<input type="text" list="predefined" name="customlist">
	<datalist id="predefined">
	<option value="option-A">
	<option value="option-B">
	<option value="option-C">
</datalist>

The closest thing is Inputfield Selectize but it is too overkill, and Text Input Awesomplete which not dropdown but autocomplete.

Thanks

You could add the datalist to a normal text field using a hook in /site/ready.php:

$wire->addHookBefore('InputfieldText::render', function(HookEvent $event) {
	/* @var InputfieldText $inputfield */
	$inputfield = $event->object;
	$field = $inputfield->hasField;
	if($field && $field->name === 'my_field') {
		$inputfield->attr('list', 'my-list');
		$inputfield->appendMarkup = <<<EOT
<datalist id="my-list">
  <option value="One">
  <option value="Two">
  <option value="Three">
</datalist>
EOT;
	}
});
