[bioontology-support] Feature request: Jump to search box in the property tab

Hi Ray, all, 


An ontology that is perfect with properties is SIO:


There are 208 properties there.

And all the ObjectProperty are in a clean hierarchy, in which it is
cumbersome to search without a search box.


In addition, I think the best presentation here will be to have a search box
on the top, and then a hierarchy displayed with 3 top level properties:
owl:ObjectProperty, owl:AnnotationProperty and owl:DatatypeProperty


And, when a property is selected, then the right part should display the
maximum number of things for the property (I mean, all the properties of the
 rdfs:label, sio:example, dc:description, sio:hasSynonym and all
the classic ones subPropertyOf, range, etc. For the moment, only the
rdfs:comment and rdfs:label are displayed.


Sorry, I realize this is 3 feature requests now ;)


Other examples of ontologies for which the search box feature will be useful
includes all the ones with many properties and sometime some hierarchies:

Can you point to an ontology in BioPortal were this would be useful? Most
ontologies have no property hierarchy at all. A few have a property
hierarchy I but I haven’t seen anything very substantial. It would be good
to have a concrete example.

Hi all, 


I would be interested by seeing a “Jump to” box at the top of the Property
hierarchy in BioPortal UI.

Exactly has we have for classes.


Does anyone know if this is hard to do?... or have done it locally?

(the question is voluntary addressed not only to the NCBO folks)
