Combobox Item Display

Is there any way in a Combo box to display all the items rather than having to use the dropdown function?  I have a limited item set of 6 items and would like to just have them display rather than having to use the dropdown.

Create a small gallery that contains the set of 6 items.  The user can click any gallery row to make a selection.

 

You can highlight the selected row by putting this code in the TemplateFill property

If(Value=Gallery1.Selected.Value, Yellow, White)

Use the list box control instead

Does the gallery option allow for multiple selections?

Is there anyway with a listbox control to add checkboxes?

The gallery allows for multiple selections.  You can place a checkbox beside each item to allow the user to make a selection.

 

Listboxes have a fatal flaw in my mind.  They do not have a DefaultSelectedItems property.  You cannot read-in multiple selections when viewing the form submission later on.

Thanks.   We have the functionality to pass values from the listbox and combobox and gallery with multiple selections, it would be so nice if they would just give use a multiple select checkbox control.   All these workarounds are crazy.

 

what is the formula that I need for the checkbox if I use the gallery?

That is true.

It can only default to one record to start with but allows multiple selections.
