Selecting the property for a Multi-select list control

Select a property for the control to determine the data type to include in the list that an application user sees. At run time, the user selects one or more values from the list.

Prerequisite:  Adding a Multi-select list control.

  1. In the Property field on the General tab of the Properties panel, press the Down Arrow key and select a property, the value of which the user selects at run time.
  2. Click the Open icon to review the property (if the reference is to an existing property in the Applies To class of this rule or a parent of that class).

    If the property is not found, the New dialog box is displayed and you can use it to create the property.

  3. For the Label option, select one of two settings:
    • To use the name of the property as the label for the control, select the Use property default check box.
    • To specify a label for the control, clear the Use property default check box and enter the label in the adjacent, unlabeled field.
  4. Optional: To select an existing tooltip for the field or to enter a new one, press the Down Arrow key in the Tooltip field.
  5. Set the Visibility option to determine when the property value is displayed.
    • Select AlwaysIf not blank, or Not zero to display or hide the field based on the property value at the time this section or flow action is first presented or refreshed.

  7. To specify when the control is not available to end users, set the Disable option.

    Specify a condition for disabling the text input:

    • Never – Never disabled
    • Always – Always disabled
    • Condition (expression) – The text input is disabled under the specified condition. In the field that is displayed, select a condition or click the Open condition builder icon to open the Using the Condition Builder to configure dynamic UI actions.. You can define a simple expression based on the comparison of a pair of constants, properties, or both, combined by Boolean operators, such as .Color="Red". You can combine the expression with a when condition rule or another expression by using the && and || operators.
    • Condition (when) – The text input is disabled under the specified condition. In the field that is displayed, select a when rule. Click the Open icon to create a when condition or review an existing when condition.
