Multi-Select List Box

Jump to solution

Many years ago AcuCobol provided a sample program using an Active-X control for a multi-select List Box. Since then, has this functionality been built in to the Extend product line? I am using Extend 10 and need to create a multi-select List Box. Is Active-X still the only way?

Having a multi-selection listbox is not directly supported within the extend product. The way to accomplish this is through the use of 3rd party controls (i.e. ActiveX or possibly .NET.) I've confirmed that the old sample for using ActiveX controls still works in Acu/extend 10. The sample is available from this web page:

I know this is not exactly the answer to your question - but have you thougt about a grid instead of a list-box ?

We use grids and you have so many possibilities including multi-selection.

Excellent suggestion! I haven't used grids since Extend 7.2 and then not paged grids. I will have to do some research and see how they might be used to solve my issue. Thanks for reminding me of capabilities I haven't used in a while.
