Is there anyway to select more items on a drop down list in Nintex Forms?

Jump to solution

I need a way to select multiple items on a drop down list in a Nintex form. Naturraly I could just use the standard "Checkboxes" in SharePoint, but as the list of choices is fairly long, this result in a long list of checkboxes in the form, and ruin the user friendliness.

 

Does anyone have a clever solution to this?

 

Thanks!

Hi,

I don't know if there is a better solution but I tested this one.

Set your choice control as "check boxes list".

In its settings, in "Advanced" section, set "Resize at runtime" to "No"

Add on your control a "CSS class" e.g. "my-scrollable-control"

Then, in Form settings, add a CSS rule, as below :

Finally, resize your control as needed and voila !

I just added a calculated value to display all the selected values in a row.

Great solution Pierre!

Can you tell me how you added the calculated value to display all the selected values in a row?

Thanks

You can use the parseLookup function on the control name. That will return just the items as a comma-delineated list by default.  Then add the appropriate prefix or suffix to the display. For example:
