Hi Madesh

At the moment, there is not multi select option for combo boxes.

There is a multiselect option for combo boxes in the format settings. Sergey is right and I'm wrong.

As a work around, we are using grid objects or tree objects.

You can embed them in the main dashboard or use them with a dialog (dashboard). The dialog can be launched with a button and pass back a parameter. Both solutions will return a comma separated list of member names.

The grid object can do it very straight forward, because of the multi select feature mentioned by Sergey. For the tree view, you need to code a business rule that implements an multi select data adapter.

I hope this helps and regards

Sorry for offering a complicated (and wrong) answer to this question. The solution is much simpler, there is a multi select option for combo boxes in the format settings (list box has it as well):

Hi Madesh,

In the Display Format parameters, there is a "is multiselect" option that you might use in case you need to activate multi select in combo box :
