# Dropdown cell type

Table of contents

# Overview

The dropdown cell type is based on an autocomplete cell type and can also be searchable.

# Usage

This example shows the usage of the dropdown feature. Dropdown is based on Autocomplete cell type. All options used by autocomplete cell type apply to dropdown as well.

Internally, cell {type: 'dropdown'} is equivalent to cell {type: 'autocomplete', strict: true, filter: false}. Therefore you can think of dropdown as a searchable <select>.
