How to make popup picker search text in small chunks and multiple selection?

Post

Hi All!

im using Kevin Franks popup picker, its a live filter as you type search, see link for detail

http://filemakerhacks.com/2011/05/09/popup-pickers/

 

i would like to make it search text in small chunks and maybe add a multiple selection also to make it better.

 

so far what i understood is that the field picker_mlk breaks down the text into bits so you can search them

example

Hamburger Patty

 

picker_mlk will create

         
  1. Hamburger Patty
  2.      
  3. Hamburger
  4.      
  5. Patty

 

How to search in reverse, so from the example

         
  1. Hamburger Patty
  2.      
  3. Hamburger
  4.      
  5. Patty

      4. tty burger

      5. urg pat

      6. ambu atty

something like the 4, 5 ,6 search type.

 

and also how to do multiple selections?

if i search Hamburger Patty, i can add it to a list, then search again, add it again, something like that.

 

Thanks All!
