I am trying to implement a searchable drop down in SS 3.1.

After testing, it turns out this automatically occurs when implementing a DropdownField after 23 items are being displayed.

I would like to be able to activate this at my own discretion, but cannot find anything to override in the DropdownField class.

I tried using a TreeDropdownField but I cannot implement a hierarchy with my solution.

Thank you.
