I have a configuration page where in there is a field for associating the IP address. IP address will be in huge number. Can some one suggest me what is the best practices to get this done? A dropdown? or some thing else?
Consider using datalist on an input, checkout on w3c
In a project i am working on we use a smart dropdown field (like google actualty) when you type it reads throug an an array in the background and shows only the maching ip adresses.
We use a joker (*) to start at the end of an ip.
0025 wil show all ip's starting with 0025,
*0025 the one's ending with 0025
The control is fairly easy to develop yourself, and there are already enough examples to find
