You add and configure a Multi-select list control when your application users need the ability to select multiple items for a single field.
You can complete the following tasks:
- Adding a Multi-select list control
You add a Multi-select list control to a layout so that application users can select more than one value for a single field on a form.
- Selecting the property for a Multi-select list control
Select a property for the control to determine the data type to include in the list that an application user sees. At run time, the user selects one or more values from the list.
- Specifying the list source for a Multi-select list control
Specify the data source—data page, clipboard page, or report definition—for the Multi-select list control. At run time, the list is automatically refreshed with new items whenever the property value changes.
- Specifying presentation options for a Multi-select list control
In configuring how the Multi-select list control is displayed at run time, you specify whether the control is editable at run time, the width of the list control, and the label format for the control.
