Welcome to the Treehouse Community
Looking to learn something new?
The hard part for me was implementing the names of the time zones into the drop down menu. I'm not sure I did it in the most elegant way, but its functional and if anyone can give feedback on line 3 of 'app.js' that would be great.
Let me know what you think, thanks!
Showing a lot of data is sometimes hard to do. It looks like you have something that functions the way it needs to. I have a small suggestion, it might be nice to prepend the dropdown list with commonly used countries first. This way you can try to make it so the majority of your users will not have to scroll too far. Another solution might be that you have an auto fill feature. Instead of a dropdown for country use a text box that when the user starts to type, you could drop a few list items of countries that start with the letters the user has already entered.
Hey Jason, thanks for the input. The drop down list definitely needs to be cleaned up and having a top group with frequently used time zones would be easier on the eyes. The suggestion about the auto fill feature is what I'm most interested in. What technology would you suggest for that? I just started on the Angular course and it looks like that may be the way to go. What do you think?
