    multiselect form

    Responding to a thread where I suggest using a multiselect listbox, I thought it would be useful to upload this simple example where you can turn a form into a multi select form. It only does a 'simple' version but with more work could probably also be extended to mimic the extended form.



    multiselectform.zip

    The principle is simple, the form requires two unbound textboxes, the first (called Select) runs some code to populate the second (SelectedList) with the uniqueID's for the selected records. Then conditional formatting is used if the uniqueID for each record is in the 'list'.

    This example has a third unbound textbox to act as a row background which is also conditionally formatted.

    The filter button has code that applies the selected list to the filter. Obviously other code to do other things such as send a report, open other forms etc could go here instead.

    I use the pipe (|) as separator since it is not used in normal spelling

    Nice! But of course I could not resist the temptation to play with it. I added a check for a 'no selections' condition (since I was able to mis-use the form right off the bat) and a button to clear the selections. Interesting that now I can clear selections on a filtered form, re-select a sub set and filter again. I also set form properties to eliminate the new record line on a filtered form.
    - "doesn't work" is no help. Post err msgs and where.
    - Use code tags for code/sql. Implement changes in copies of your database.
    Sometimes I talk to myself - like when I need expert advice.
