Re: [terryally] Multi-select to display links and images

The new multi-select dropdown lets you select multi values.

For searching multiple tables see the experimental 'multiSearch' function in this thread:

Hope that helps!

Thanks Dave.

I downloaded multisearch.php and configured it. Also made amended to line 683 of /lib/view_functions.php and it works.

I have version 1.20 but did not get a file called multiSearch.php as part of it.

Secondly, am still at a loss at to where to find the multi-select dropdown box.

Hi Terry,

Just so we're clear multiSearch and multiSelect boxes are two totally different things.

You can find the example multiSearch.php file attached to the original thread linked above.

And the multi-select dropdown box can be set in the field editor. Just click modify on a list field and select:
Display As: ( x ) pulldown (multi value)

Hope that helps!

Hi Dave,

I've had a look and to be perfectly honest, I don't understand.

However, let's leave this thread here. I just got CMSB and I will get to this in the fullness of time - if and when I need it and at that time if I still have not fully digested the information and instruction, I will post a question here again.

Cheers
Terry

It creates a drop down field just like normal but makes it taller. And if you hold "Ctrl" you can select multiple values in the pulldown and have it remember them.

It's just variation on the common drop down field. There's also multiple checkboxes available now as well. They're both ways to store a "list" of values in a single field.

Is there something in particular you were trying to do with it or you just were curious about the new features?

Hi Dave,

I am trying to familiarise myself with the software and have been reading this forum to acquaint myself with the issues and add-ons, explanations etc. The multi-select caught my eye.

I understand the concept of multi-select, drop down boxes etc.

What I was trying to understand was to how to make CMSB achieve this. That is what baffled me.

However, as indicated in my last message, it is not something that I want right now and therefore I am happy to terminate this thread until such time as I do need it.

Cheers
Terry
