I have a view that utilizes a node-reference field. I want users to be able to filter by this field using a search-box (or an autocomplete field), but when I set the exposed filter to the node-reference field, all I get is a drop-down. How can I force this to be either a text field or autocomplete?

Views autocomplete filters


You can also use entity reference instead of node reference. That module offers an autocomplete filter.
