limit users input based on distance search.

Question

Hello

Two weeks ago, I was wondering if we can make a submission form with a distance search. 

What we are trying to do is basically make a text-field where the user will input his or her location then there will be  a  dropdown button or list which only contains locations in our record which is within 30 miles from the user. We thought we can make via cascading element. However, after a short communication with the support, they informed us that It is not possible do that via dropdown. 

I found an alternative workflow though. First, I made a Data Page with a distance search. The user will have to input their location via zipcode then it will return all records within 30 miles from it on the results. Then I passed this value as a parameter on my submission form via link.

It is working fine for for us now but its kinda lot of work plus it cost us two data pages for a single process. 

I hope if help others but please comment if you have a better idea in mind.
