Neither ComboBox? nor FilteringSelect? support the size and multiple attributes that can be set using a native html select.

Hi guys, there was a recent discussion ( about having such a multi-select widget, but I figured it would be a different widget, rather than part of ComboBox / FilteringSelect. It doesn't seem like the filtering capability is needed along with multi-select, and I'm not sure how the interface would look/work. I figured we'd just have something that looks like the native multi-select, but with the ability to add images and custom HTML to each choice.

Anyway let's discuss it some before implementing anything.

(In [12012]) refs #4408, #5359, #5550 - adds semantic degradable textarea, select, and hidden input types that work with dijit.form.Form

Hi. That looks like a good start and worthy of adding to dijit now; eventually I'd like the multi-select widget to support rich text (ie, HTML embedded in each option tag), which will require a complete rearchitecture, including a11y support. (Currently a11y should work transparently since you are using a native <select> node as your template.)

OK, I'm moving/porting this over from Peter's widget in dojox.

Resolution: fixed
Status: assignedclosed

(In [12182]) Move dojox.widget.Select to dijit.form.MultiSelect?. Also refactors the code and fixes some bugs. Fixes #5359.

(In [12183]) Update dijit.form.Form to handle MultiSelect?. Refs #5359.

(In [12189]) "Hidden" widget, copied over from dojox. The "Hidden" widget is basically equivalent to <input dojoType="dijit.form.TextBox?" type="hidden"> but with less overhead; not sure if it's worth having a separate widget for hidden input fields but adding for now. Fixes #5700.

Also checking in forgotten updates to Form test for MultiSelect?. Refs #5359.

(In [12210]) Remove dojox.FormWidgets? since they've been moved to dijit. Refs #5359, #5550, #5700

(In [13096]) Must have isDebug: true to display firebug-lite console so can see results of "getValue()" button. Refs #5359.
