Multiselect Widget

Frequently Asked Questions



I'd like to change the style (color, etc...) of the widget.

The look and feel of the widget can be modified using CSS. The file that should be modified is ui.multiselect.css. In that file, there are several CSS selectors that allow the modification of the style for different parts of the widget.

Why does the widget already add one selection on load?

That happens if the select control box doesn't have the attribute multiple="multiple", for example:

<SELECT name="countries[]" id="countries" multiple="multiple">...

If you are editing your page from Dreamweaver just check the "allow multiple" check box in the property inspector.
