Newbie: List Filter with an extra "fill in the blank" option?

Recommended Posts

Hi --


I'm trying to learn how to use/create Alfred scripts myself, and would like to implement something like an auto-complete feature often found in search boxes. In particular, I'd like to prompt the user with a list of pre-defined options, but given them the option of typing in something new that isn't on the list. The List Filter appears to provide a mechanism to define a fixed list of items to pick from, but is truly restricted to only those inputs. Is there another widget type, or even an Alfred Workflows idiom, for handling the additional case of "My item is not on this list so I want to enter it by hand"?


Thanks in advance,
