Prototype: new cheat sheet and in place editor

Category: JavaScript, Library, Prototype

<>p>The maintainer of scripteka, the Prototype extensions library, has produced a new cheat sheet for the recent 1.6.0.2 release.

He also has his own widgets such as Proto.IPS an unobtrusive in-place-select widget that mimics the Gmail chat ability to drop down and select, or type in your own new content.

Yeah, isn’t the fact that something works how it is supposed to if it is mirroring something that already exists enough to make it “unobtrusive”?

whuh? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unobtrusive_JavaScript. Great work Juriy, thanks for the free time I get to save up with that cheat sheet.

IPS? It’s a combobox. Why do so many plugin developers come up with unsearchable names?

(I guess it’s better than those that call an autocomplete field–or worse, a stylable select, a combobox.)

@bander
IPS comes from In-Place Select – Select box with In-Place editing capabilities. I admit that it’s far from being unobtrusive – a proper way would be to augment already existent drop down. Demo page mentions that this is a work in progress, so there are obviously lots of things that could be done *better*.

Yes, it’s not “an unobtrusive in-place-select widget that mimics the Gmail chat ability to drop down and select, or type in your own new content”, it’s been called a combobox for as long as I can remember, way before Google or even the Web even existed…

When drop-down list is very long it just streches, but there is no inner scroll implemented((
