HTML Tag: datalist

A list of options for use by form controls. It can be associated with an input element, and contain options defined by option elements. A text field can thereby be extended to have an additional list of user-selectable options.

The list attribute on an input element will associate the form field to a datalist that has a matching id attribute.
