      Dropdown Box in WebDirect

      Post

           We have several dropdown boxes in our application.   Some are used to choose Events or People, both have several hundred entries.   So when the application is accessed by WebDirect there is great frustration in finding the correct Event or Person.

           Is there any what to modify the we WebDirect with PHP or something else to get the functionality of the dropbox back like in the client where I can type the first letters and narrow the list down?    Where can I find some documentation on this type of modification?

               I don't think that you can combine PHP with WebDirect, but could easily be wrong.

               Is is possible that you could prune the list down using a conditional value list?

               If you can group the values into categories, you can select the category in field 1 and then the value list in field 2 can list only the values of that category. Such a "category" might even be all names starting with a A-L or something...
