I’ve been using Select2 in a number of ways and it’s been pretty great, but I’m a bit stuck on this particular issue.
I’m using Select2 as a main website search box - so you click on the search box, the search field/menu opens and as the user types a search, you get live results populated by ajax, and it works great (basically like the search box on this site). However, as Select2 is really a menu replacement, you have to click on it once to open it to get the text search box.
When Select2 is in pillbox (multiple selection mode), the search box is permanently available, which is my preferred behaviour for a website search box - the text field is “open”, you can just type into it to get live search results.
Is there a way I can use this “multi” mode display behaviour to leave the text search always available, without having the multi/tag behaviour, which isn’t applicable in this context?
Thanks - in the meantime, I’ll continue to search around tor tips…
