The New TextboxList

Posted by : admin
Filed under : General

Over at devthought, Guillermo Ranch has rewritten his clone of Facebook’s “TextboxList” component:

It’s been some time since TextboxList got some attention. It is undoubtedly one of the my most popular JavaScript projects, along with the famous Fancy Menu (MorphList) and its slideshow sibling, BarackSlideshow.

TextboxList has been rewritten from scratch, and it’s more solid than ever. The first time around, elegance was not one of the goals. I focused on releasing the first open source script that reproduced the Facebook’s tokenizer.

Changes include:

* Compatible with MooTools 1.2.x
* New options, such as addOnEnter, which adds boxes upon pressing enter (useful for tags or categories widgets).
* More events, which gives the developer more power to extend it.
* Each element is now identified by an id, a plain value and a HTML value.
* Use of control, alt, meta keys no longer interfere with the elements keyboard navigation.
* Bugs with text selection fixed.
* Improved API, even more extensible.
* Plugins support

It also includes an autocomplete plug-in, which has its own feature list:

* Flexible. It does not depend on a specific data source (XHR, Json). Instead, the developer supplies the data which can come from anywhere.
* Binary search for maximum performance
* Simpler CSS with comments for non-experienced developers.

Guillermo tells us that a Dojo version is in the works, and Ajaxian reader Thomas Aylott adds “This thing is seriously awesome.” Check it out!
