I have a scenario where a user needs to be able to check/uncheck multiple items in a multi-select list box based on another control.
For example, lets say the user is required to select a pattern name
- Pattern 1 - blue, red
- Pattern 2 - pink, yellow, black
- Pattern 3 - white
The multi-select list box is connected to a sharepoint list that contains a very long list of patterns (>50) so it may be hard for someone if they don't know which pattern they need already. To make it easier, I want to build a search function where the user searches for the colour and returns the pattern. Then the user can click "Select" and the correct pattern in the multi-select list box gets selected automatically instead of having the user to scroll through the whole list.
I was able to build that search function using filtered repeating table, but I'm not sure how to select the pattern using the search result. For example, if I want white and red, I'll search for white, the search returns "Pattern 3", and I can click "select" to have it checked in the multi-select box. Then I'll search for red, and the search returns "Pattern 1", and I will click "select" again and also have it checked in the multi-select list box.
Is this a possibility?
