    Default Embedded Multi-Select Check box list To Filter another checkbox list

    Hello everybody,

    I want to create an Embedded Multi-select Check Box List that will filter another check box list item from different tables. I couldn't find any checkbox list control on my Alpha Five Version 10.5. Probably a wishlist for Alpha Five to add in future releases or an update of this version.

    Issue:
    Lets say: An Item or multiple items is checked on Check box List (A) from table (A), and as a result of that, a different item is checked from Check box list (B) from table (B). These items (records) will be collected from data already in tables and stored in the form or browse.

    I'm a clear novice to xbasic, could only create an xDialog check list, and not an embedded multi-select check list.

    Please is there a solution to such an issue?

    Thank you.

    Aaron

    In the properties to a field select setup tab and then look at control type drop down box. This will allow you to create a checkbox field.

    I don't quite understand what your requirement is. When you check a list in the a checkbox the variable will contain the result. If you check more than one item, the result will become a list. You thn can loop through the list to populate a table as you need to.

    Not sure what you mean by store in a form or a browse. A form or a browse are based on tables or sets, so do you mean to store the result by appending to a table/s?

    Hello Mark,

    Thank you for your prompt reply. I'm sorry for not replying in time. Please allow me to elaborate on my requirements:

    For instance, I have two tables (A and B) that are already connected or linked together with already created row list of data from 1 - 10, and I want these data (from table A and B) by default, to be displayed on an embedded checkbox list on a form. Now, when a table row data (an item) or multiple data is checked on table A's embedded checkbox list, it will automatically select or filter already specified data from table B's embedded checkbox list. Then, I can now check the selected available boxes from table B's embedded checkbox list before saving the form. This saved data could be viewed from a browse form.

    Also, how will this be available for a browse, if this will be based on the same table or a set, as you mentioned on your last post, its beyond my knowledge of Alpha Five. When the form is closed that contain both the checkbox list and the browse, the data can still be viewed when its opened again by selecting a row on the browse.

    I hope you understand what I mean't
