View Full Version : Why doesn't extjs support the select tag?

14 Dec 2011, 3:31 PM
If I have a list of 20 things and I'd like them all or most of them to be visible, the <select multiple='true'> tag makes the most sense, it allows for multiple selection and shows many choices at once, but extjs doesn't support this even though there are requests going back to 2007 for it.

What should I use instead? I can't put a Dataview into a form, but maybe I could put a hidden field in there with a connection to the dataview selection.......

I'm new to this and just don't have a good feel for how to do this.

You can put a DataView in a form... anything can be an item of a form.

Would a MultiSelect give you what you need?

Yes, that is what I was looking for. Not sure how I missed it.
