WorkingWithMultipleSelectBoxes

Basic Scheme

The basic scheme was to adapt the code found at this website: http://www.mredkj.com/tutorials/tutorial004.html so it could be called and work with any pair of select and input boxes. Noddy stuff maybe but.....it was new to me so I thought I would share.

The Group

This forms the list of items for the drop down. From what I can tell, the <noautolink> is needed if the items in the list resolve to WikiWords which names of registered wiki users do.

  • Set MULTISELECTGROUP = <option value="Sandbox.ExperimentationWithListFunctions">Sandbox.ExperimentationWithListFunctions</option> Apple <option value="Sandbox.ExperimentationWithListFunctions">Sandbox.ExperimentationWithListFunctions</option> Pear <option value="Sandbox.ExperimentationWithListFunctions">Sandbox.ExperimentationWithListFunctions</option> Sultana <option value="Sandbox.ExperimentationWithListFunctions">Sandbox.ExperimentationWithListFunctions</option> Raison <option value="Sandbox.ExperimentationWithListFunctions">Sandbox.ExperimentationWithListFunctions</option> Banana

The Form

A simple HTML form and the use of onclick to update the input variable with the current state of the selection.

Second form

This shows a second form working independantly using the same JavaScript function.


You might like to look at using FormPlugin - it makes all this stuff simpler smile

Thanks for the note. Agreed - but this is for the non-Admins like me who are on systems where the FormPlugin is not installed. I will ask for it....

Updated so it works with IE6 - I needed to a value in for each option and also change onclick to onchange - I got lulled into a false sense of security with Mozilla......
