Subject [jira] [Updated] (PIVOT-844) SuggestionPopup Allow replacing selected text to the beginning index until current cursor of TextInput or TextArea Component
Date Mon, 16 Apr 2012 13:56:18 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIVOT-844?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Sandro Martini updated PIVOT-844:

    Fix Version/s:     (was: 2.0.2)

Moved to 2.1 because to have a good working solution I should add a method to the public API
of TextInput.
For example otherwise I'm not able to move the caret (cursor) to the end of the text and have
all text de-selected.

Brendan, my current proposal is to make a custom component extending ours and in the meantime
implement something like my second patch here in attach (based on current trunk).
Brendan (and others), be free to reopen and reassign to 2.0.2 (or later 2.0.x if any) in case
you need some small change in Pivot sources to make your component work with this feature.

> 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
> 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.
