Show dropdown only once the user starts typing #1062

Currently, once a select has been chosen'ized, the dropdown shows options the moment the user clicks on it. Is there a way to do that only when the user types in n(ideally configurable, n=1 will do) characters ?


This is very vague and rough but something along the lines of..

$('input').on('keyup', function(){
if ($(this).val().match('n')) {
// do something

Right now, Chosen opens up when someone clicks or when someone starts typing in a focused Chosen field. It sounds like you want to limit the behavior to only when someone types. I don't really see a usability advantage to making that kind of change -- in fact, I see the opposite. Chosen should only add features if and when they provide a measurable benefit to the end user.
