Best way to handle selection in thousands of options

Hi,

I'm looking for suggestions about how to handle a select of around 1800 driver's names.

My app will have several select dropdown controls populated from tables, only one with such a lot of records. It will be great a control that performs a search based on part of the name.

Looking forward to your comments, thanks a lot.

Regards

Diego

You are definitely going to need an "autocomplete" solution. The links above will help get you started. This means you'll probably have to write some server-side code too.

Thank you very much Chris,

Chosen seems a very good option, I didn't know it, I will give it a try.

In the meantime I was looking at Framework7, it has a search bar that works nice with lists. I hope Intel update the F7 version in XDK, besides the list, it has a lot of goodies.

Regards

Diego
