Is it possible to have multiple selections in a dropdown list in the Filters at the top of TableControls?
Currently, I only can select one entry from each dropdown list.

If I have A,B,C,D,E,F in the dropdown list, I'd like to be able to select A,B,D,F and filter by those values.

Thanks!

Using ISD controls, only ListBox has multiple SelectionMode. Multi-Select DropDown List is pretty common on 3rd party tools like Telerik.


Cheers,

or you use some custom javascript to open a window and display a checkboxlist control with a Filter button.  That approach has worked out well for me.

I have enabled multiple choice in a list BOX but it dies not seem to work. Stops after the 1st choice.

Multiple Select ListBox is most useful only in filters and could be fitted also with column controls bound to a non-key field. It will not work on Foreign Key bound columns.

Instead... Learn to over-ride the CreateWhereClause event for the tablecontrol you want to filter. Then you can source values from any control (even third party) and apply the filter exactly how you want.
