I like the component, but I would suggest – for future releases – to create a more detailed documentation;
I moved from jqwidgets, as this seem a more modern one; but here documentation lacks in many ways; I often try to guess for properties not described but surely existing; a developer probably finds the answers he’s looking at on his own, without having to try for hours or even open a question in the forum;
I’m sure it will help;
anyway … good job!December 29, 2021 at 6:21 pm #102711January 5, 2022 at 2:20 am #102743January 5, 2022 at 3:43 pm #102748January 21, 2022 at 6:56 am #102796

I can give an example. I’m trying to learn how to use the combobox autoComplete feature right now.
In the ComboBox>autocomplete section it looks like there are 4 values for the autocomplete property (none, auto inline, manual) . There is no indication of what these properties actually do. Combo Box Auto Complete (htmlelements.com)
it seems like alot of times it just tells you what a property’s name and data type is, and how to get/set it, but not what the valid values are.
Things just seem vague and hard to find sometimes. – its hard to articulate why that is.
love these tools, and hope to see the docs get better!February 3, 2022 at 7:47 am #102833Giovanni ZomerParticipant
I think, JoeLaRue described it really well; the point is that the tools are very good but the documentation lacks very much; you can spend hours and hours in testing, “imagining” how this part works, as you will find no help in the documentation and the number of users is too low to go and find the solution or the examples on the internet; I think that investing in a much better documentation could convert much more tester to buyer!

No autocomplete: The combobox is editable, and when the popup is triggered, the suggested values it contains are the same regardless of the characters typed in the combobox. For example, the popup suggests a set of recently entered values, and the suggestions do not change as the user types.
List autocomplete with manual selection: When the popup is triggered, it presents suggested values. If the combobox is editable, the suggested values complete or logically correspond to the characters typed in the combobox. The character string the user has typed will become the value of the combobox unless the user selects a value in the popup.
List autocomplete with automatic selection: The combobox is editable, and when the popup is triggered, it presents suggested values that complete or logically correspond to the characters typed in the combobox, and the first suggestion is automatically highlighted as selected. The automatically selected suggestion becomes the value of the combobox when the combobox loses focus unless the user chooses a different suggestion or changes the character string in the combobox.
List with inline autocomplete: This is the same as list with automatic selection with one additional feature. The portion of the selected suggestion that has not been typed by the user, a completion string, appears inline after the input cursor in the combobox. The inline completion string is visually highlighted and has a selected state.

The property descriptions for all UI components have been improved and updated. For example: https://www.htmlelements.com/docs/combobox-api/#toc-autocomplete_none__auto__inline__manual.

just a suggestion, it’s better if each component has a data option property like <smart-combo-box data-options=”width:300;height:30″>
<smart-combo-box data-options=”fit:true”> //for width:100%
form combobox hav capabilites to hold data record, so when selected item we can get data record mode detailFebruary 4, 2022 at 3:48 am #102849
