Multi select

The Multi Select allows the user to perform a selection of zero to many entries in a droplist. Its functionality is essentially the same as the Select component, but the user can select more than one object.
A Data Source in Appfarm has a built-in property called Is Selected. It exists for each entry, and specifies whether the object/entry is selected or not. Multi Select is a UI Component which allows the user to select one or more objects in a Data Source, thus setting the Is Selected property for the selected objects.
A full example setup on Multi Select is available in our Showroom. You may view a demo, as well as access the setup in Appfarm Create. If you do not have access, you may register on Showroom Signup.



Select the Data Source that holds the options that the user can choose from.

Display Value

Select which property of the Data Source (selected as Option) that should be displayed for the options of the Multi Select.


If you do not want all entries of the Data Source to be selectable, you may apply a filter here to limit the rows of the Multi Select.

Conditional Filter

You may also choose to have a dynamic filter on the Data Source, that is applied given certain conditions.


If the list of options is long, you should consider checking this setting. It allows for searching the options of the Multi Select.
