    Description

      As discussed in grouper-users, after 31 objects are found in a folder (or 1 + max objects shown), add a pseudo-object "...". Clicking on this object will be the same as clicking on the parent folder.

      Subject: [grouper-users] "Browse folders" pane: no visual clue indicating truncated list
       
      Hello,
       
      since migration to Grouper 2.4.0 some users are disconcerted because when they use the "Browse folders" pane and navigate by expanding the folder hierarchy they cannot see all their groups.
      I found out that lists in that pane are limited to 30 objects maximum for a maximum total of a 100
      cf. https://lists.internet2.edu/sympa/arc/grouper-users/2014-08/msg00028.html
      (by the way is there another description of this in the Help or the wiki?)
       
      What disconcerts some users is that there is no visual clue that the list is incomplete,
      and also that in other environments (e.g. file systems) they are used to be able to navigate down to any object in the hierarchical view.
      Of course there are other ways to navigate to groups, but that's the feedback we received.
       
      Is it possible to indicate that the list is truncated (for example a "..." marker or fading/grayed end of list),
      or even to enlarge the list to more objects (e.g. clickable "see more" marker)?
       
       
      Regards,
