I can't replicate this behavior with radio buttons or drop-down lists. Those objects allow only one selection at a time. What is the "Selection" button you're referring to, is it the "arrow to show/hide list" or a button object w/ script?
Sorry, I meant the "Shift" button your keyboard from a Mac workstation...
And on an iPad, you can just click on more than one item...
the user can select more than one item by clicking on the "Selection" button and choosing more than one item.
"Selection button"??? What's that?
You can definitely select multiple values by holding down a modifier key such as ctrl or shift, but you can also set up an auto-enter calclulation that limits the value in the field to only the last value selected.
You can define this auto-enter calculation and then clear the "do not replace existing value option":
GetValue ( Self ; valuecount ( self ) )
Thanks so much, Phil. We tried using the
"GetValue ( Self ; valuecount ( self ) )" in the auto-enter calcuation field and clearing the "do not replace existing value" option, but unfortunately, it seems like you can still select more than one item in the drop down menu by selecting the "Shift" button...
That should not be the case. But it may look like it. This option still allows multiple values to highlight in the value list, but the actual value of the field will be just one value once you exit the field.
