Welcome to MenuOptions¶
MenuOptions was created for one reason:¶
To reduce - to an absolute minimum - the # of keystrokes and clicks required for data entry & navigation.
What it looks like:¶
- Input masking
- multi-column autcomplete
- menu system based on JSON
- rocker control
- uses color highlighting to show autocomplete matches
- mouseover filtering to reduce choices
- it can utilize data from a variety of JSON types (array, array of arrays, single object, array of objects)
- the value associated with with the label string is saved in the input element automatically (in the menu_opt_key - no need to manually update a hidden field)
