I have a redbox with a form in it and one of the controls in the form
would typically be a select box. However, in my select box, I want to
include every role in a given table as options, and that could get
monstrously large and hence impact load time.
In a web 2.0 world, it seems the ideal solution is an autocomplete
text box – and in most instances this solves the problem wonderfully.
However, this functionality I cannot get to work when embedded in a
form in a redbox.
So my question then is if anyone can direct me to another means (other
than the kludgy, select box with thousands of records!) that I can
accomplish a selection without using a select box – or, of minimizing
the records in the select box so as to make this workable. Are there
any other html controls I can use? What do people use when they have
thousands of options to select from? Thanks, Rvince
