I got a textfield/combobox for typing a search string (or selecting a recent searchstring). The search results are presented in a list below the box.
I also got a textfield for filtering the list.
The following familiar designs illustrate the problem. The upper example is from Outlook where the list is sorted as you type. The bottom example is from Chrome where suggestions are given in a dropdown box.
How to combine the two? The suggestion area (Chrome) would overlap the list (Outlook).
Does anyone have an example of an application that combines filtering and suggestions in one box, similar to this? Maybe I am way out, because I cannot find any.
