To create an efficient Search form, you can enable the multi-select option for listbox fields in your search forms.

Note: Submission Forms and Update Forms do not have the multi-select option as a standard feature.

  1. To add the multi-select feature, edit the Report DataPage and go to the Configure Search Fields screen.
  2. Select the field for which you want to enable the multi-select feature.
  3. For the Text (255) field, on the Standard tab select Listbox from the Form Element drop-down list.
  4. Go to the Advanced tab and enable Allow multiselection. Match any (OR) returns all records containing any of the selected values.
  5. For the List-String field, on the Standard tab select Multiselect Listbox or Multiselect Dropdown.

  6. Note: For the List-String fields, the multi-select feature cannot be disabled.

  7. To select many elements, press CTRL (only for the Text (255) field, when set to Listbox form element), and click the required elements.
