Feature Reques - Collapseable Category/Subcatagory

Request,

    One thing that would greatly improve the usability of egw is to have
the category select lists collapseable. For example, when entering a
calendar item, when you go to select the category, you have to scroll
through a number of subcategory listing to get to the category you want.
We have a number of categories and subcategories. One example is the
category 'Clients':

Clients<Global>
  Bertin<Global>      Bertin Clients                  Add sub          
  Guillory<Global>     Guillory Law Firm Clients               Add sub
       
  Joint - BA<Global>     Bertin-Allen Joint Clients               Add
sub        
  Joint - GA<Global>     Guillory-Allen Joint Clients               Add
sub        
  Joint - GB<Global>     Guillory-Bertin Joint Clients               Add
sub        
  Joint - RA<Global>     Rankin - Allen Clients               Add sub
       
  Joint - RB<Global>     Rankin Bertin Joint Clients               Add
sub        
  Joint - RG<Global>     Rankin-Guillory Joint Clients               Add
sub        
  Joint-RGA<Global>     Joint Case Rankin, Guillory, Allen              
Add sub        
  Potential<Global>     Potential Clients               Add sub        
  Rankin<Global>     Rankin Law Firm, PLLC Clients               Add sub
       
    Cases<Global>     Categories of Cases               Add sub        
      Auto<Global>     Automobile/Car Wreck Cases               Add sub
       
      Commercial<Global>     Commercial Cases               Add sub        
      Family<Global>     Family Law Cases               Add sub        
      Med Mal<Global>     Medical Malpractice Cases               Add
sub        
      Products<Global>     Product Liability Cases               Add sub
       
    Engineering<Global>    Engineering Related Cases               Add
sub        

    It would be great to be able to collapse the category Clients such as:

[+] Clients<Global>

    and then when Clients is expanded you see:

[-]Clients<Global>
  Bertin<Global>      Bertin Clients                  Add sub          
  Guillory<Global>     Guillory Law Firm Clients               Add sub
       
  Joint - BA<Global>     Bertin-Allen Joint Clients               Add
sub        
  Joint - GA<Global>     Guillory-Allen Joint Clients               Add
sub        
  Joint - GB<Global>     Guillory-Bertin Joint Clients               Add
sub        
  Joint - RA<Global>     Rankin - Allen Clients               Add sub
       
  Joint - RB<Global>     Rankin Bertin Joint Clients               Add
sub        
  Joint - RG<Global>     Rankin-Guillory Joint Clients               Add
sub        
  Joint-RGA<Global>     Joint Case Rankin, Guillory, Allen              
Add sub        
  Potential<Global>     Potential Clients               Add sub        
  [+]Rankin<Global>     Rankin Law Firm, PLLC Clients               Add
sub        

    and of course if Rankin was expanded you would see the first full
list shown above. This would greatly reduce the category list clutter
and speed the selection of the alphabetically later categories like:

Court<Global>      Court                  Add sub          
Court Appearance     Court Appearance/Hearings/Trial          
Court Reporters<Global>                     Add sub        
Deadline     Deadline               Add sub     Edit    
Depositions                     Add sub     Edit     Delete
Experts<Global>     Experts             Add sub        
Financial<Global>     Banking & Financial Services             Add sub
       
Insurance<Global>     Insurance & Adjuster Information               Add
sub        
Law<Global>     Law and Attorney Related Matters             Add sub    
   

     and so on.  We have 48 categories total and the full category list
in all applications is getting pretty long.  Just something to
consider.  Thank you for this fantastic product!
