Hi All. We are very new to mendix and looking forward for help in achieving one of the functionalities for our application. We want to achieve a facebook style tag friend textbox / textare, which can also contain a general text and tags can be included in between the text. i.e., When the user starts typing “@”, it should list all the Friends from the “User” table. We are able to find few widgets which support tagging. For e.g.https://marketplace.mendix.com/link/component/116854 However, it doesn’t exactly meets our requirement as it only supports tag selection and doesn’t allow to write a general text. We are looking for more like facebook where tags are a part of the whole text itself rather than a selection. Please see the screenshot attached. Thank you very much for the help in advance.
There is no 'Facebook'-widget available, but you can use a text-widget and use it's on-change event to trigger a flow (nanoflow) to check for the presence of '@’ and if so, have that flow trigger a flow to search for contacts.
