Is there a work around to get the list box to function as a multi-select?

I've been able to get the basic html code to do what I want using the framework. However, going about this option when the user hits submit, something strange happens with the submission.

I'm able to successfully submit a form on my own server following the proper procedures, but the end result is lacking a multi-select.

For reference I have complied both examples http://domain.brainiactutor.com:

Any suggestions on either getting the form to submit to the server correctly using the framework. Or being able to have a multi-select function using WFB-manual export.

thanks

Are you using Form Builder?
Just making sure.

It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Yes,

The first form you see when the page loads. Is the form I exported from WFB, using manual settings. Then uploading the appropriate files to the server. All is good no problem ( besides being able to multi-select from a list).

The second form you see is me taking the same exact form and exporting it as automated server set-up. I proceed by taking the HTML putting it into RSD and creating the appropriate dependencies. Going this route I'm able to multi-select from the list. However, when hitting submit the nothing happens

I haven't tried it but you could add a checkbox to your form and change it to a dropdown multi select after export.

So it seems that the default 'list' element in WFB is actually a multiple select. It's not very obvious on desktop as it's a click and drag to select multiple items, but on mobile you are able to individually select from the list.

Ok Cool I never knew that. I have pretty much moved over to Form Designer and doing my own back end scripts.

I've just started using web-form builder, and form builder more often recently. I still have a sense of uncertainty with users being able to successfully submit information. However, I'm quickly becoming familiar. I followed the tutorial regarding hooking up a form. Using the back-end functions of web-form builder, and the front-end of form builder. Then compiling all of it inside RSD.

It's still not 100%, but should be soon. It was a lot of fun to do, and look forward to more cool projects.
