How to change search type to 'contains' for the Select widget?

I have a use case where I need to select one entry based on characters entered. I can accomplish this either by using AutoCompleteInput or Select, but the search within options is only for items that start with the entered characters. I need it be a ‘contains’ type search. Is there a way to do that?

Neither widget currently support this kind of search. It’s probably a reasonable extension (especially for Autocomplete) but it will take new development to implement so the first step is to make a thorough feature request issue on GitHub.

Thanks for your response Bryan. I believe there is a similar request for AutoCompleteInput -> Should I still go ahead and make one for Select or just add a comment to that issue? This is my first time on the discourse. Hence, the question.
