Text input for updating plots in plotly (without dash)

Hello, first time posting here!

I have a strong need for plotting 100s of graphs, to keep the notebook clear, I want to update the plot dynamically, which can be done with ipython widgets, but I need them to work after exporting to html.

Buttons/dropdown in updatemenus are almost perfect for this, but its not practical to display/scroll through 100s of buttons, is there anyway to give a text input, so one could just type the graph name directly. I have a feeling that it should be possible but cant figure out how. Any help is very much appreciated. Thank you very much! :pray:

The below is something i tried but scrolling through them is impractical
