Hi @Luke , can you return the desktop view as before? Since the last update on the desktop you can see it as if it were a mobile or an app ...
 

Before when you were using the "Search" button in your browser...
Typed the user name.. And the browser showed you the user
 
Now if the user is below in the page.. The browser cannot find it
If you go down with the page... the browser detects it
 
Before it went down automatically and highlighted your search... now no more

I don’t have an old screen of settings
 
 
Initially I used the Chrome browser's "Search" button

The browser highlighted the text searched
 
Now if I use the Search button the browser cannot find the text.(user)
In particular in the section "Users"
 
Find only what I see too... If the text is under the page and then I should "scroll" Chrome doesn’t find it
 
 
Can you enter the option to use the page " Settings" either with the new one... or with the old version?

What do you mean by cannot find the text?

Presumably before you are required to scroll, you have not read the later data - and the browser search only uses what's been downloaded so far.

Ok yes, it's caused by the new virtual scrolling. The answer is no, we can't reverse that it is a must-have feature nowadays.

 

To solve this, we're going to have to override the browser search function and replace it with our own.

so every website using virtual scrolling has to override the integrated search in the browser?

If they want the search to be able to search all content and not just what's rendered on-screen, then yes. But even back when we had paging, we had this limitation as well. You had to page through 100 at a time, and the browser search function would only be able to search through the current 100.

User interfaces can't handle rendering massive lists all at once, so that's why you need virtual scrolling. Most web pages don't need this, so that's why you're saying that.

 

The browsers don't have built-in virtual scrolling api's which means web app developers have to build their own themselves, and this requires replacing many built-in functions with custom versions in order to get everything to work. Chrome has expressed interest in having a built-in api, but it's not available yet.

I have observed this on other web sites; but it's never bothered me, 'cos if it matters there's usually a search field available that works server-side.  I've never seen them overlay the browser's search for this, though.

An example of overriding it would be any forum based on discourse where the topic is over a certain length. It's too much to render all at once so it is virtualized just like our scrolling. When you press control-f to do your browser search they intercept it and present a custom version that will work with their rendering.

I see; I'd missed that because I don't frequent any forums that use Discourse, partly because I find them so unpleasant to use...

With Internet Explorer 11 there is no such problem

The browser scrolls down the page to the user to search

If there’s this "Bar" There's no such problem
On google chrome there is not this "Bar" and you have this problem
 
Can you create a search button for users?

Ie11 doesn't support the virtual scroll so we're just rendering everything all at once. So yes it will work there, but if you have a big enough list you may lock up the browser.

Can you create a user search manager?
