[SOLVED] Which Field Type For Multiple Choices From A List

2 years 5 months ago - 1 year 1 month ago #293534 by bins
I want members to be able to identify what areas of business they are in. For many members, this would be a simple choice from the list (which could have a few thousand options!).

However, some members work in several fields e.g. web design, seo, social media etc

I have been playing with the field types but cannot seem to find one that allows the searching of the list (e.g. list get refined as keywords are entered) and then allowing multiple selections.

Am I mission this somewhere?

There is no select2 usage for fields. You can try forcing it by using CB Auto Actions and applying the jQuery to the field, but that means you can't condition off that field anymore as the jQuery in CB Conditional doesn't account for select2 usage. There also is no CB Query Field usage where it starts out empty, you search a value, and it populates the dropdown based off what you typed.

Typically the best way to handle a field like that is a text field or textarea field and they supply it themselves.

Select2 - didn't know it had a name!

I do not want to allow free entry, primarily as we want to use this for business matching, but also because of spelling issues and wrong descriptions!

I might just have to start with a simple list or multiple choice list, but, as the options are so long, I can user issues...

Well you can make it select2, but if you also need to condition it with CB Conditional you won't be able to otherwise it'll work fine. You can do this using the below for example.

But will work allow for multiple choices?

Yes, our custom jQuery plugin cbselect will work with single and multiple select fields.
