multiple default values for a multipicklist UI field

Hello all,

is there a way to set multiple default values for a multi-select picklist UI field?



Is there anyone who can help? Cheers, Ben

Not exactly.

This is a salesforce limitation, not a squid one.

You can ‘cheat’ with a custom field renderer, however:

var field= arguments[0], value = skuid.utils.decodeHTML(arguments[1]),<br>&nbsp; $ = skuid.$; <br>// If there isn't a value, then make the value our 'default'<br>if (!value) {<br>&nbsp; value = //this should be a semicolon delineated string<br>&nbsp; field.model.updateRow(field.row,, value, {initiatorId: field._GUID});<br>&nbsp; // if you want to save...<br>&nbsp;;<br>} <br>//Render<br>skuid.ui.fieldRenderers[field.metadata.displaytype][field.mode](field,value);

matt, thank you - I’m just learning about Skuid - where do I use this code (with the necessary changes)? Cheers, Ben.

This is a custom field renderer. Create a new javascript snippet on your page, name it something reasonable, and paste the code above into the snippet. Then click on the field and change the rendering options to ‘Custom’ and type in the name of your snippet.

Matt - worked like a charm - thank you - that makes a big difference at this end. Ben
