Modify existing search widget in WAB (text-box to drop-down List)

I would like to modify the Search Widget available in WAB so that I can select values within a layer.

I currently have the search box set up to search a layer by the field "name" when typed in the text box, but I would like these names available in a drop-down menu.  I have attempted to rearrange code and use bits from other widgets that contain drop-downs but I receive errors.


Current html code for search widget (out of the box from ESRI):

<div data-dojo-attach-point="searchNode" class="search-node"></div>
<div data-dojo-attach-point="searchResultsNode" class="searchResults arcgisSearch"></div>


Code containing the drop-down function (from eSearch widget by Robert Scheitlin, GISP) :

<select class="esearch-select" style="margin-bottom:10px;float:left;"
data-dojo-attach-point="selectLayerGraphical" data-dojo-type="dijit/form/Select"></select>
<div data-dojo-type="dijit/form/DropDownButton" data-dojo-attach-point="gSelectType" iconclass="newSelIcon"


How would I be able to use the 2nd to modify the 1st?..correctly


Thank you!
