Selection Listbox

Dear all,

Ich would like to mark several items in a listbox:

30781, 30782, 30783, 30784, 30791, 30794, 30795, 30786, 30787, 30788, 30797, 32085, 32086, 32087, 32088, 30789

How do I do this?

If I seperate them by comma, I do not obtain the selection I want.

Thanks for your help

Björn

Are you trying to select by searching for these values? May be try like this:

(30781|30782|.....)

Hi Bjorn

Can you explain a little more what your requirement is? Do you just want to be able to select several values in a listbox? You can just hold down the shift key and click on several values or use the control key if  they are not together in the list. I may have misunderstood your question so please let me know.

Separate them with a space rather than a comma

Hello Brian

I am aware of this but my listbox is very long so that your advise would cause errors.

Thanks

Re: Selection Listbox

Do you mean "select several items". The search string would be pipe separated:

(30781|30782|...|30789)

Or you could use a range as a search string:

>=30781 <=30789

If I understand your query then bring these values as a field in to your app using the load script then display that field using a list box on the UI. list box allows multiple selections so you should be fine.

Re: Selection Listbox

how many values do you have in the list box. You may use the multiple column option in list box to fit all values in the list box. Otherwise best option is the use search in the list box and then CTRL + select more form the list box.
