Using Portals as Pickers


     I've got a parent table with a portal that lists several records in the child table, related through the parent's IDKey field and the child's Parent_ID_FK field.

     What I want is to be able to select various child-records in the portal and run a script on those (and only those) records.   Radio buttons or checkboxes would be ideal, here, but I can't figure out how to use those to do what I want.

     I have a beginner's grasp of arrays, but I'm a bit lost as to how I would use one here: does my best solution involve creating a checkbox in the portal row that adds the portal-row ID to an array?   A brief step-by-step how-to would be helpful, if so: I'm not entirely clear on how to manipulate arrays yet.

     Thanks in advance.
