Multiple values selection in a field using input box

Hi All,

I have created one input box to take multiple values from the user to get select on a field.I have done it with Variable event trigger.But when user given one wrong value in the user input list that won't affect in selections but appear in current selection box.How to avoid unrelated values from current selection box.

A manually input is always error-prone. The only way to solve this is to check the input against the field-values and remove invalid values. It's not easy to check:

- values separator

- max/min length --> len

- numeric / string --> purgechar() + keepchar()

- getpossiblevalues()

- ...

I suggest you choosed another way to simplify the user-actions, perhaps with additionally categories/cluster on certain fields or ....
