Substring Search in CB Query field - how to get this method

3 years 2 months ago #292461 by MMDoege

is there a way to get elegant style of searching CB Auto Action offers (see attached screenshot)?
I'ld like to use this for Query Drop-down (multi-select) fields with CB core fields ajax enabled on user profile.
Currently I have two fields where cb_query_field gets updated on a cb_textfield by executing a "... LIKE '%[cb_textfield]%' " select request.
Operates well but is somewhat cumbersome and having some drawbacks.

Thank you.

It's not an ajax search, but basically a filter on the options already rendered by that dropdown. So it may not work how you're wanting it (e.g. it's not going to dynamically update the options available based off what you filter to). Yes, it's possible to use that jQuery in profile edit, but it does not integrate with any other plugins at this time. So CB Conditional, etc.. may no longer work on those fields. At any rate it can be done using the below.

Triggers: onBeforeRegisterFormDisplay, onBeforeUserProfileEditDisplay
Type: Code
User: Automatic
Access: Everybody
Method: jQuery
$( 'select#FIELD_NAME' ).cbselect();
Plugins: cbselect

To apply to all select fieldtypes you'd use the below.

$( '.cbft_select select,.cbft_multiselect select,.cbft_queryselect select,.cbft_querymultiselect select' ).cbselect();

Following from a separate topic (pointing to here), where does

$( '.cbft_select select,.cbft_multiselect select,.cbft_queryselect select,.cbft_querymultiselect select' ).cbselect();

go? In the plugins box, instead of cbselect?
