Subject [jira] Created: (JSPWIKI-381) Sneak Preview should be time-based

Sneak Preview should be time-based

                 Key: JSPWIKI-381
             Project: JSPWiki
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Editors
    Affects Versions: 2.8
            Reporter: Klaus Malorny

I discovered the new "sneak preview" function of the editor. This is a nice idea, but I think
the way the preview is updated is not optimal. If I understand this correctly, the preview
is updated if the edit control loses the focus. Also, some extended functions of the editor
seem to trigger the update as well. At least I get some updates when I don't expect them.

I would prefer a solution that is based on the idle time of the user, if this is possible.
If the user is inactive for a certain time and he did some changes, the update is triggered.
Since I assume that the preview includes a round trip to the server, I would adjust the wait
time dynamically. I would measure the round trip and display time of the last update and would
set the wait time as a multiple of it. In addition to that, I would add an explicit update
button and/or keyboard shortcut to initiate the update.
