Make a Drop Down editable

is it possible to make a drop down box with selection, but also give a user the ability to type something else in the box?

RE: Make a Drop Down editable

You can use JavaScript:


function addOption(theSel){
  oc = theSel.options.length;
    newOpt = window.prompt("Enter Address","");
      theSel.options[oc] = new Option(theSel.options[oc-1].text);
      theSel.options[oc-1] = new Option(newOpt, newOpt, true, true);
<select name="strCcBillAddress" onChange="addOption(this)">
<option>Please select
<option>See Customer Info
<input type=submit>
