I am building an application with an editable drop-down. It is somewhat similar to a combo-box, a combination of a textbox and a drop-down component wherein you can edit the values from the list.
Thanks in advance. ;)
There's so much to learn in this industry, and not everybody has the necessary interest.
I don't know of any component that does this. And in fact, there isn't even anything close in pure HTML. What you would want to implements is something similar to the Google Suggest component or MyFaces InputSuggest] component but you'd probably have all the values already populated in the list, which is really just a scrolling div.
Thanks for the reply. I am using standard JSF and a little bit of MyFaces Tomahawk. I was just hoping that such a component is already existing out there. But as you said you haven't heard of such component, and I wouldn't want to build it myself as it would take a lot of development time and effort, which is a bit impractical in my case. One option I am considering is using an AJAX autocomplete similar to the Google suggest that you were saying which is very close to want I want to achieve. Unless someone out there with a kind heart has already built such a component, and would want to share. ;)

Wow after almost two years! That's amazing. I actually forgot why I asked this question or where I needed this particular requirement, but thanks Venkat for the update. I'm still using JSF in my current project, though now with a different company. Regards!
