Text for items in the list


Allows multiple items to be selected in the list box. The items in the field are marked or unmarked by the check field and uncheck field statements or by the user. The shift key is used to select consecutive items. The control key is used to select non-consecutive items.

The status of the items in the list must be examined using the checkedfield() function.

The items in the list are specified by the data type definition or at runtime, using the add item statement. Items added at runtime aren’t saved in the application dictionary; they must be added each time the application is run. Up to 32 items can be displayed in the list.

The change script for a multi-select list box field runs each time a new value is selected in the list, including each time the up or down arrow key is pressed to move to a different value.
