Topic: Search in a dropdown list

Michaël De Schutter priority asked 3 months ago

Expected behavior

I am using a Dropdown with a search bar, and the search bar is expected to function properly.

Actual behavior

The search bar is not working; I am unable to click inside it. I suspect that the issue might be related to the dropdown being inside a modal. When I move the dropdown and place it outside of the modal, it functions as expected.
