Hi all,

there is a select type in visual basic where you can type a value in it or
select one of the values in the object.

Does this exists in HTML?

No. The closest you can get is a select element with one of the
options being 'other' and a text input for the user to type into.
Optionally JavaScript can be used to disable (or even hide) the text
input unless the 'other' option is selected; but regardless of that
the server will need to know what to do with silly data ('other' not
selected but box filled in anyway, and vice versa).
