Does virtualization DropDownList support a user providing a value not in the list?  

Scenario:

There's a list of currently active work items that would be a query to a data source that populates the DropDownList.  There's a chance that the user would want to override this list and provide a value not provided in the DropDownList.   Can the virtualization drop down list provide the normal behavior but be able to over-type the selected value in the situation it doesn't match the needed value?

Hello Jerdobi,

The DropDownList value should belong to the current list of items. For your scenario, consider a ComboBox with AllowCustom="true".

Alternatively, provide a mechanism for the user to add an item to the DropDownList datasource, and then select it as a second step.
