I have a requirement to produce a dialog much like a richfaces listshuttle component for my UI wherein a user would select one or more items on the left to populate a sublist on the right. This would be in place of a multi-select list field. The list itself will be populated with names from our LDAP directory (calling it a "Name Picker"). There are some 4,700 names to be listed, so paging will need to be used to keep it quick. We want a user to be able to click into a field above the source list and enter characters. As the characters are entered, the source list should jump to the item in the list matching the entered characters (from a person's last name).
Has anyone seen an implementation of the rich faces list shuttle component that does this or any other alternative for JSF? Please point me in the right direction! Thanks. Yes, I am new to richfaces.
