I need a name picker now for a project and find it great to see a name picker project that is still living, and a name picker with such a recent release date!
The drawback came when I started to test the picker: seems like the picker cannot handle non-ascii characters.
On Firefox (3.5.8), the list that displays the names to select from does not display any special characters. (Pity I cannot attach a screenshot here). When I type "Büh", these characters are displayed correctly and it will correctly find all persons with names like "Bühler" etc., but the names in the selection box will display a "?" in a black diamond instead of the "ü" characters. This happens not only with the umlauts (ä, ö, ü), but also with the french and spanish special characters (like ç or ñ).
On IE (7.0.xx), it is even worse: the picker cannot search for names with such characters - the status line shows "error in page". In the list of found names, when a name contains a special character, it is cut after this character (e.g. "Günther X" is displayed as "G? X").
(I tested both on Domino 7.0.2 and 8.5.1 servers - behaviour is the same.)
With this bug, the picker is not usable for us as an international company! (and what's more, we have to make apps run on IE…) However, it has so many features that I still hope I will be able to use it in the future. Please have a look into the IE problem and the international character handling. Thanks!
