Current Selections box

Is there any way to list values from a field - line by line in a Current Selections box instead of values appearing as one continuous string separated by commas?

Nope, not really.

If it's something that you'd like to invest a bit of time in you could create this using a Text Object and GetFieldSelections() and concat() the selections with a carriage return chr() as the separator.. but it sounds like overkill.

Hi dalejames,

You can use the below function in the text object.

This option is not available for Current selection box, but you can do this by using GetFieldSelections() and formatting the result as required, using a Text object you can display the selections.

Hope this helps you.

Re: Current Selections box

Many thanks each of you for your quick responses. I’m trying to show the values that I have de-selected from a List Box containing [Diagnosis 1]. I’ve created a Text Object and tried concatenating with:


=concat(GetFieldSelections([Diagnosis 1])&chr(13))


I’d like to see:



        T39.1 Poisoning by 4-Aminophenol derivatives

        N39.0 Urinary tract infection, site not specified

        F20.0 Paranoid schizophrenia


But I get the following result:

NOT T39.1 Poisoning by 4-Aminophenol derivatives, N39.0 Urinary tract infection, site not specified, F20.0 Paranoid schizophrenia


Which still appears as one string. As this may contain several values, I need to break up the values to make them more readable, one diagnosis per line. Have I got the syntax correct in my concat?Any further ideas?

Thanks again

Re: Current Selections box


Try like this

=GetFieldSelections([Diagnosis 1],chr(13))

And you can minimize the text object. As per value..
