I'm trying to "combine" the textbox and dropdown box. I can't seem to get them lined up though.

My code:

<input name="" type="text" maxlength="50" style="width: 665px; padding:0px; z-index: 2; position: absolute;" />
<select name="" style="z-index: 1; width: 695px; padding:0px; position:absolute;">
    <option value="Value for Item 1" title="Title for Item 1">Item 1</option>
    <option value="Value for Item 2" title="Title for Item 2">Item 2</option>
    <option value="Value for Item 3" title="Title for Item 3">Item 3</option>
</select>

I've created a demo for you here: http://jsfiddle.net/aJaa6/

*note that I changed the widths so it would fit in the panel.

CSS:

#container
{
    position: relative;
}

#input
{
position: absolute;
top: 0;
left: 0;
z-index: 999;
padding: 0;
margin: 0;
}

#select
{
position: absolute;
top: 0;
left: 0;
padding: 0;
margin: 0;
}

Markup:

<div id="container">
<input id="input" name="" type="" style="width: 100px;">
<br>
<select id="select" name="" style="width: 115px;">
<option value="Value for Item 1" title="Title for Item 1">Item 1</option>
<option value="Value for Item 2" title="Title for Item 2">Item 2</option>
<option value="Value for Item 3" title="Title for Item 3">Item 3</option>
</select>
</div>

Dropdown TextBox, In every other windows application I am aware of Combo Boxes allow selection from a dropdown OR text imput. PowerApps does not allow text input.
