Feature: make month dropdowns searchable / refinable


#1

Looks like you’re using chosen for nice dropdowns - why not enable to filtering capabilities to people who prefer to use the keyboard can enter the first few letters of the month, then continue along?


#2

The reason why date input is that way is because I wasn’t able to find date picker control which would support all possible date formats around the world last time I’ve looked. I will be looking again, I’ve seen some new date controls popping up lately.


#3

@lubos you are using select2 correct? You should just be able to enable search on the data which would give keyboard access to the months? Apologies if I am missing something.

I much prefer having 3 inputs (day, month, year) when choosing a date, rather than a datepicker/calendar.


#4

I have disabled search option in select2 control for month field because I thought it would be silly just for possible 12 values.


#5

@lubos having it enabled would make keyboard-centric data input much more streamlined: typing the first few characters - or even the first - of your input is far preferable to using arrow-up/down (the direction dependant on the today’s month), or jumping over to the mouse / trackpad / etc


#6

The latest version has lookup field on “Month” enabled


#7

That’s perfect - thanks so much!
