  • Hi,

    Since there’s no 'dropdown' in the html world, I would like to know whether the 'dropdown' is meant as the select control. From my experience, the select control doesn't stand by text input, so it would be better if you can provide more information about how you want to provide auto complete feature with the select control. 

    If the 'dropdown' means an auto complete list for a text box, I would recommend you to check http://jqueryui.com/demos/autocomplete/ for a sample, the standard jQuery UI Autocomplete can also be used in Metro.
