multiple selection mode for ${ask()}

Wed Nov 02, 2016 5:57 pm

Dear developers,

I would like to use ${ask()} in an Action to let the user select multiple values, in order to fill an attribute. It seems that currently only single selection mode (by radio buttons) is supported. Is there a way to make ${ask()} allow also multiple selection, in analogy to oxy_popup where I can set the "selectionMode" to 'multiple'?

Best regards and many thanks for all your precious work!

Hi,

Thanks for the report, we already have an issue registered for this and based on your feedback I will try to increase its priority.
This type of ask editor variable would probably show a list of checkboxes and you would also need to tell it the separator that it should use when composing the final value from the list of checked values (space or ; or ,).
For now you will probably need to implement your own AuthorOperation Java extension and show your custom dialog to allow for such customization.

Regards,
Radu
