      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!
