The AJAX Select Box Plugin is a new form element that uses AJAX to retrieve options by populating the select box based on the selected datalist. Users can type in the search filter and it will dynamically retrieve the available options as the user continues to key in. Click the images on the right for sample screenshots. You can also download the demonstration app to show the usage of an AJAX Selectbox form field element plugin.

The latest version of this plugin is ajax_selectbox-7.0.7.jar. The 7.0.3 version is needed if you are running Joget Dx v7.0.25 or higher.
