Trigger suggest after typing a character, for part of a text or search field

edited June 6 in Technical questions

Is it possible to build a control like Twitter's edit box, that autocompletes hashtags after the # character is typed, and leaves the rest of the text intact?

Twitter editing with hashtags suggest.

Webix does this in the Comments widget when @-mentioning users, but I need only the edit box.

tag input triggered by one character

I've looked at related threads but they deal with the entire text box.



  • That's an interesting suggestion, thanks for the idea.

    We will add it to our backlog and consider extracting a Comments input area into a standalone widget, but now I cannot tell you the final decision or estimate.
