|Summary||0026992: Mantis could be empowered with jQuery's select2 or a different select update|
With large number of values, the classic "option/select" is not functional any longer.
Perhaps this could have been integrated more beautifully in the code, but it works and gives beautiful results.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
Works e.g. for versions, tags, usernames, ...
That said, for me the main issue with standard SELECT is when the options list is very long (e.g. system with many thousands of users, see 0025666) as in this case it can even cause the browser to hang or crash. So if we were to use a widget like the one you're suggesting, it would need to be more tightly integrated than what just replacing existing selects, to be able to use remote datasets.
