this: http://www.interiders.com/wp-content/demos/ProtoMultiSelect/test.html would be also an example for multiselect.

#2 Updated by rupert thurner over 9 years ago

this would maybe usable for: * categories (one issue can have multiple categories) * related to (as there are a lot of issues)

#3 Updated by Mark Gallop over 9 years ago

I also needed to do this as my Redmine install needs 2000+ users.

Attached are some patches/files for a method I am using for creating an ajax search box for selecting the author of an issue. Although this is not something that would be needed in Redmine core, it might be a base for adding the feature when the lists would be too large for a combobox.

This patch requires the Rails auto_complete plugin.
