Suggested values with 'thumbnail + text'

Hi everyone,

I was thinking… Would it be possible to have a “Enum” type field in a Form with suggested values, that show a ‘thumbnail + text’ and filter “live” while typing?
Something like this:

Has anyone accomplished such thing with AppSheet?

Thanks!

This is already how Enum and Ref dropdowns work. Are you not seeing it? I think it only shows up when the list of options gets larger than a certain point.

Thanks Marc, Im sorry,
I didnt explain myself very well.

I did accomplish the live filtering while typing.

Now what Im looking for is to have the dropdown list, with the text+thumbnail, not only the text.
I´ve tried a VC with concatenate(‘text’,‘image’) but that doesnt work as it just modifies the image file name.

Any ideas?

To get thumbnail image and text, you need to check “label” option in text and image columns in reference table

Thank you @FREDY_ORTEGON!

I have tried this, I already have the columns I want to come up as suggested values marked as labels, but still not showing the image.

Can you confirm please what expression you are using in the “Suggested_Values” field?

I only have this: Lista de nombres[Nombres]

Thanks again!

Images AND text will only work for Ref-type column dropdowns, not basic Enums. You can change your Enum column to a Ref column pointing at your Lista de Nombres table.

Thanks @Marc_Dillon,

I´m almost there.

Now, I´m getting a warning icon instead of the actual image in the column with this…

Any ideas why?

Thanks for the help!

Did you delete your old suggested values expression?
