Select Multiple Options


I am using the select tag to define a series of options in a drop down list. However, I would ideally like to be able to select more than one option from the list, rather than resorting to placing a series of checkboxes for the admin to select.

I have seen a few posts in the old forum where doing something like this has been tried, but it seems that this did not work.

<perch:content id="articleService" type="select" options="Oil and Gas|A,Marine|B,Nuclear|C,Defence|D" suppress="true" multiple="true" />

Has there been an implementation of multiple select, or is my best option to just give the admin a series of checkboxes.

There's no multiple select option. In theory you could implement that using a field type, but I'm not sure how you'd handle the templating of multiple items.

Thanks Drew, I will just implement a series of check boxes and take the 'easy' route.

Is this something that is likely to be implemented in the future ?

I realise you have your hands full with Runway et al.

Never a dull moment huh ......

As I say, I'm not sure how it would be templated.

How about using a repeatable region?
