Not sure where everyone gets their pattern examples from, but I have an instance of a web-based application needing long lists which are equally important to each other. Some users have over 100+ lists that need to be sorted quickly or searchable. I have some floating concepts in my head but no solid examples of working in practice. Could use some links or guidance.
Problem: Users have multiple lists that are viewed depending on what they are creating. Lists are excessively built and curated by user. Usually lists are not used over and over, but there are possibilities of them being used again or recalled later.
- ABC ordered list
- All viewable when dropdown expanded (also increases page length dynamically to height of list)
- Show last 5 lists viewed
- Expand button / show all button (max 15-20 displayed)
- Search lists with dynamic mini inline searchbar
