Hello , I love both Autocomplete and Select components and I need to combine it, I mean be able to Dropdown and write down in the same input for autocomplete just like many libraries allow. Is this possible? Regards

Hi gllermaly,

Right now it is not possible to do that, but we have plans to rewrite the Autocomplete component from scratch, and then we will try to implement it. Thank you for your suggestion, we appreacitate it.

Thanks, this will be useful too .. because its weird for the user to see an empty list, or sometimes data is unknown so user dont know which letter type first.

Yes, you're right, already added to our TODO list. Best, Ania
