Hello myDBR Representative,
How are you doing? I am running into another scenario that requires the entry of multiple values from a large list for a parameter. Most of the time our users have entered in comma delimited values ("29222, 32433, 53243, 23433"). That works to some extent however it is not a preferred user experience because it is a little messy especially if a user enters even one incorrect/unvalidated value. The multi-select checkbox is great until we start dealing with a datasource with thousands or even hundreds of values to select from (biggest example is zip codes).
I would like to request for a multi-autocomplete parameter to be added to the parameter type choices. I found a basic jquery example that I think would help illustrate, and maybe even provide a platform for the code that could be implemented into the framework. The difference from the above example, that I think would make the experience more streamlined for the users, is to pull the validated text and put it into a separate object adjacent to the autocomplete texbox. Through that method we could potentially have a counter for the total added texts and provide an option to remove each validated piece of text. See below visual for a crude example of what has been suggested:
Let me know if you have any questions.
