[CLOSED] Check Box Question
Now on version 8206.08. We converted many of our forms to have Check Boxes as opposed to Ctrl+Click. Users love it.

Is there a setting or way to have the check boxes behave more like Excel, ie if: ALL is the default then: ALL is checked but EVERY drop down item has a check mark as well. This way if you want ALL but 2 of 20 items you simply remove the check on 2 items as opposed to removing the check alongside: ALL and then manually checking 18 items.

With some js and a onchange event you can accomplish that.

Some j's? I am hesitant to ask exactly what you mean by that!

Can you elaborate what we would need to do..I was hoping there was a simple setting or switch to flip.

I suspect it will not do this out of the box. You should contact Techsupport for your answer.

If you need to have a work around, then definitely ask here.

BTW, JS is Javascript.

Sorry, I should have first ask for clarifications

What have you changed in your forms to have checks box instead ?
Are you talking about a dynamic multi-select drop down list ?

Originally it was a list box. Say a list box of 25 depts. The user could Ctrl + Click each dept to appear on a report.

We simply changed the control type to: check boxes because its far easier to check the departments than trying to Ctrl + Click them.

That works. So in the box you see: ALL followed by each dept. All is the default. Everything works fine.

But...what if the user want all Depts EXCEPT 3. Since we have 25 depts. they must uncheck ALL then recheck every dept EXCEPT the 3 they do not want.

More preferable would be that when ALL is checked, each dept have a check alongside it as well. In this manner the user need only uncheck the 3 undesirable depts. to get his/her report.

We do not know how to make this happen.
