MultiselectList Cotrol in Grid does not hold selected values



User has included a MultiSelectList control for one of the columns in a Repeat Grid. After selecting multiple values from the list, if the user clicks out of the grid, the selected values are not retained. The focus goes to the default option "None". 

Error Messages

Not Applicable.

Steps to Reproduce

1. In a section configure a Repeat Grid with inline edit mode.
2. Include a MultiSelectList control in one of the columns of the grid.
3. Run the flow, select a few values from the MultiSelectList and then click outside the grid.

Root Cause

  This behavior is observed because when user clicks out of the grid, the row being edited changes to read only and thus this prevents the data from being sent to the clipboard.


Perform the following local-change:

Add the MultiSelectList in a section and include this section in the column of the Repeat Grid.

In the Operations Tab of the Repeat Grid, under Grid Operations, select the “Allow refresh on update” option. This will force a refresh and post the selected values on the Clipboard.
