Selectable lists

how do people handle selectable lists? in .NET apps I would just have a multiselect list box. For example I have a list of 30 items all to be displayed at once, and the user may pick 1 or all of the items and then process them.

I was thinking just a grid of checkboxes with labels and recording which item is checked or unchecked, or is there a 'better; way to do this?

Currently, not a better way. Some folks have built tables with checkboxes in them before but it’s tricky to get right due to paging.

Selectable tables are slated for 1.5 of Universal which might be what you’re after:

thanks a lot, that is exactly what I’m looking for. Will work on some other things till that is available!

Hi @DavidB only going from what you typed, there is this component on the marketplace which was a team-up development:-
This allows me to populate this list via SQL, to allow the user to select one or more items from this drop-down then process the selected results. Works like a charm for me :slight_smile:
