Display Checkbox Field Selection Data Horizontally in Read-Only Field

Post

I have a field that uses check boxes to select grade levels (7, 8, 9, 10, etc). Obviously, the check box field allows a user to select multiple "grades" for the field.

 

If a user selects multiple items (grades), I believe FileMaker enters each item checked separated by a paragraph character, so if you looked at the field formatted as a Edit box, an example with multiple selections would look something like this (a vertical listings of items selected):

7

8

9

 

 

In list view, I would like to display the contents of the selection horizontally, to get a more accurate representation of the record's selections; so I would want to be able to place the field on a list-view layout that formatted the entry above like this:

7, 8, 9

 

or like this:

7 8 9

 

What is the easiest way to do this?
