Subject [jira] [Updated] (PIVOT-844) SuggestionPopup Allow replacing selected text to the beginning index until current cursor of TextInput or TextArea Component
Date Wed, 11 Apr 2012 16:45:16 GMT

Sandro Martini updated PIVOT-844:
---------------------------------

    Attachment: PIVOT-844_first_version_rough.patch

First (rough) version of it (with many TODO inside and some things to see, like if use a property
or a style for the appendMode), but just to give the idea to get some feedback.

Apply this patch to latest trunk, then run SuggestionPopupTest.java to show it.

Now it's missing a separator style

Note that there is a problem: when I press some key and appendMode is true, no chars are deleted
in the text field, so there are extra chars ... we have to see if/how to handle this.

Feedback is welcome.

> 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.
