• Type-ahead cannot keep up -- loses characters

    By Gary T Roberts 9 years ago

    I'm not the world's fastest typist, so it came as a surprise to me that the type-ahead feature cannot keep up with me, even when I type relatively slow… It loses characters also. Very annoying…

    Other than that, looks pretty good!

    • I think a delay before searching would help

      Thanks for that feedback. I know what you mean. The problem is that the agent starts searching as soon as there are 3 characters. I think a delay before it starts searching would do the job. That gives you time to enter extra characters before it starts searching. I will check it out.

    • Found a bug

      I found the cause. Somehow the code that manages the XMLHTTPRequest for modern browsers ended up being synchronous instead of asynchronous. Fixed now. I also added some code to take some load of the server. I'll put the new release (2.2.0) in the next few days.
