Select which Template is used for Switch Asset

When using Element Relative Display and Switch Asset, allow for selecting which Template of the current Asset is used for searching when is using templates that are derived from other templates.

The current search appears to only be based on the most derived Template but the display may be valid for a common base template shared by different types of assets.

A dropdown could be shown in the Switch Asset selector when the current asset is using derived templates to help filter.

    I could also envision the dropdown, rather than being strictly tied to type of template, instead being configurable by an admin. The admin (or display owner) could set or filter a list of assets that would be selectable for the given display.

    I'm not sure if it's completely the same but I'd like to be able to swap assets on elements where their primary template is not the same, but they inherit from a common template. Example: In the Speedys Pizza database all vehicles inherit from the "Vehicles", but the swap assets functionality only works on the the template they belong to directly. As a consequence I cannot create a speed vs. speed limit display and swap between all elements - even though all elements contain these two attributes from their base template.

    User Story: Search for assets by derived/related templates: As a process engineer, I want to retrieve all the assets from the inherited asset template from the base template.

    For example: I want to find all the ESP pumps. There is a base ESP pump template, there is a Haliburton ESP template, this is a XYZ ESP template. I'd like to retrieve all these and be able to compare the different types against one another.
