Feature Request: Filtering objects in selection dialogs.

Anton Tandiono shared this idea 7 years ago

Hey JIM dude,

The number of data masters, variables and screens in my prototype is getting large and I find it tedious and cumbersome to scroll through objects to find and select the one I need.

One example is when I need to link to a screen or set a variable in the interaction dialog.

It would be great to have "live filtering" and "auto-complete" where you start entering the name of the object and the list is filtered on-the-fly as familiar on Google's webpage and various IDEs.

This would speed up work tremendously. Not to mention soothe my nerves.

Do you have this feature planned?

We don't have that feature planned yet. But it's a great suggestion.


Cool. Hope it makes it in soon.

To all JIM users: click on the +1 button so Victor has a reason to plan it in. :o)


I really like this idea and would like to suggest that it be extended such that an "auto-complete" option could be turned on for any Category box where the displayed list of entries based upon a stored list or data master would shrink as matches are made to what is keyed in the category box as it is being keyed.
