What is the maximum number of entries in a drop down or cascade list

What is the maximum number of entries in a drop down or cascade list?

Would it be able to handle 1000 or more options?

Technically, you can add loads, but you will find pages begin to slow down if you go too high.  That will probably be way higher than your people can find useful in a single select (a cascading select is harder to max out for people, as the first layer helps break up the results a load, but still, if you're hitting more than 20 in either side, they're going to struggle)

Hi

Thanks for the feedback.

I totally agree with what you saying and we have worked towards making the "list" shorter, however we using this method to standardize the current list of vendors we use, and it is many, but we still want them to be able to select rather than type in incorrect ones.

I am leaning towards a cascading list, but before I confirm with the team I want to know that if I reach 2000 or 5000 that we can still accommodate them.
