This component is intended to avoid excessive requests from client to server, and unecessary database queries, on an autocomplete field when the target Entity has lots of records (hundreds or thousands) but is not changed frequently.
 
A simple combobox? not a good idea...
A field with a button that triggers a popup to list and select records? old school...
A common autocomplete field that downloads the entire list of records on every pageload? let the web flow...
 
Important tip:
Load a localStorage object with a JSon like this: [{'id':'123', 'value':'qwe'}, ...]
    I created a TestPage that treats this in Preparation. Ideally you could do this during the Login process, only if the entity's records and the localStorage's array are in different versions.
What’s new (3.1.0)

- Added a new parameter: LookupLimit - Number of maximum results to display for local lookup. Default = 0, means no limit

- The demo app was separated from the component espace

- Fix on when one refreshes the search input field filled with any string (not having selected any value from the list of options)
