Subject [jira] [Commented] (PIVOT-844) SuggestionPopup Allow replacing selected text to the beginning index until current cursor of TextInput or TextArea Component

Brendan commented on PIVOT-844:
-------------------------------

I didn't see you make use of the parameter "characterPosition" in suggestionPopup.java and
it seems you do the replacement from the SuggestionPopup Close listener in the test.java.
 For this, I can see the effect took a while to process.
I think you should handle the replacement from the SuggestionPopup skin.  So that, setAppendMode
and related code are removed, because it is not necessary.

> SuggestionPopup used to replacing whole content of TextInput once user make a selection.
 This creates difficulties in implementing, for example, a list of comma separated email addresses
in recipients column. 
>  I suggest to modify the replacing methodology to allow additional parameter of Index
of the beginning word to input so that the SuggestionPopup will replace from the beginning
index to the current caret (text cursor) with user selection.  Additionally, allow not only
TextInput but also TextArea to be served with, which we can build a typing assistant like
function.
> The finding the beginning index is user code responsibility which opens up the choice
of usages, like email address assistant where ";" is the separator and space as separator
when general typing assistant.  The user code just need to use Java String Split to locate
the closet word to the caret for SuggestionPopup.
