Multiple select

Select this control to provide the user with the ability to select multiple items. It provides the same functionality as Checkbox Group (i.e. allows you to select multiple options for a single field) but looks much different and requires less space in the forms. Live Demo.



Max width

Use this property to restrict the maximum width of the editor (this means that in any screen resolution editor's width will be less or equal then the property value). Can be specified in any units supported by web browsers e.g. 300px, 25em, 50%, etc.



You can separate values to be represented in the control and values stored in the database. For this purpose use the dialog opened by the ellipsis button and enter the values you need, or add them manually as pairs stored_value=value_to_be_represented separated by commas (Example: 1=One, 2=Two).


Maximum selection size

This property allows you to restrict number of items that can be selected simultaneously.


Retrieve values from database

If this option is checked, stored and displayed values are retrieved from the specified data source. In this case hard-coded values described above are ignored and NOT included into the list of available choices. To enable Multi-select editor:

select the foreign table/view/query as Data Source;
specify the field with the values stored in the database as Stored field;
set the field with the data to be appeared in the lookup editor as Display field;
specify sort direction of represented values as Sorting;

and set the filter condition.


Using Filter condition

Filter condition allows you to reduce the list of values represented in the editor with a specified criteria. This condition corresponds to the WHERE clause applied to the data source (you must not add the WHERE keyword to beginning of the condition). The following operators can be used in this clause: =,<> (!=), >, <, >=, <=, BETWEEN, LIKE, IN.  It is also possible to use predefined variables like %CURRENT_USER_NAME%.


Number of values to display

Reduce the list of values represented in the editor specifying the scope.


Inline styles

Use this field to set formatting options to be used inside the style attribute of the element. For example, to set the font color and the background color for a control, place the following string to Inline styles:


color: red; background-color: yellow;


Custom attributes

This property allows you to add simple metadata to individual elements, largely for the purpose of providing information to make JavaScript functions easier. Such attributes can be later handled in client-side events. For example, to add several custom attributes to an editor, enter the following string into the Custom attributes edit box:


data-city="Boston" data-lang="js" data-food="Bacon"


It is recommended to prefix all custom attributes with data- to keep the result document compatible with the HTML5 requirements.
