-------------------------------------------------

             Summary: We should replace select boxes with  jQuery replacements like Select2
and Chosen
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-8430
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLOUDSTACK-8430
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: Improvement
      Security Level: Public (Anyone can view this level - this is the default.)
          Components: UI
    Affects Versions: Future
            Reporter: Ramamurti Subramanian


I recently encountered an environment with more than 4000 projects, making it really hard
to navigate through them using the default select box.

We can improve the UX by using jQuery plugins like select2(https://select2.github.io/) and
chosen(http://harvesthq.github.io/chosen/).

They have nice features that we could use like searching, tagging, remote data sets and infinite
scrolling.

I would personally recommend select2 as it has better features than chosen, but it requires
jQuery 1.7.2 and CloudStack uses jQuery 1.6.4.

It can be used as a replacement to any select box in CloudStack which has lots of options.
