I want to have multi-select drop down for an entity whose values are fetched from other entities in Model-based PowerApps.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The multi-select options is a new control in the Dynamics 365 CE and have new features, however, the control is an option set, only a list of items that you can select more than one option.
the following is the documentation, I have not tested, but I think this could be applicable to the CDS and Modal Driven apps.
hope this helps
Out of the box the Multi select field type in the CDS and Dynamics 365 CE are only working with Option Sets, and your escenario will be creating a entity with the values related or not related to the source entity, that will just list the options and make the relationships.
hope this help.
This is crazy?? Model-Driven app don't support lookup control that allows multiple selection?? That can't be true... If it is, yet another example of failed low-code approach that don't meet real life requirements. 😞
@testasdfasfsafa Lookup is nothing but a foreign key, so it can only store one value.
If you want to select multiple values in lookup, then you need a sub-grid control (create many to many relationship which creates subgrids on both entity sides)
Can you share the steps how to download & install NtoNMultiselect control from "https://github.com/ashlega/ITAintBoring.PCFControls/tree/master/Controls/NToNMultiSelect". I don't see any solution related files there.
Can you please share how to do this.
