I wonder if it's possible to modify the drop down list and show a search box with the options in cart, exactly like the one that the backend has (example attached).

Now users are searching a big list to find their state. I thought they can start typing their state and the results will be limited with this user friendly drop-down list.

I wonder

No, VM DEV unfortunately, it does not use standard procedures and features defined in Joomla Framework, but your own (sometimes even 8 years old - look at admin template and sidebar menu).

For example, there in the basket (www.zelenazeme.cz), we had develop in the shipment plugin Zásilkovna in ollaboration with Rupostel (we paid it, Stan developed) instead of Virtumart's own Dropdown with Search and suggest.

If you need, than you can ask him.

Yes, it works and for me like this but only at the edit details page. I wonder if it could be possible also in cart. I forgot to mention, I use VP One Page checkout.
