OnFocus Autoexpand of Listbox
Posted on 2006-07-13
I am working on a listbox solutiuon that I have most of the other capabilities worked ou.
What I need is a way so that when a listbox get focus - it automatically does a dropdown. This is distinct from setting the size to say 10 instead of 1.
The end solution that I am working on will be an AJAX aware listbox so that the use can start to type and the listbox automatically gets any results that match the entered text. Often there is a situation where one might have hundreds of entries in a listbox (I have seen some bad example) and I want to minimise it so that only upto 10 options are loaded at a time.
I have this working perfectly in a textbox solution already but would like to have a listbox as well.
