    How to change the checkboxes representation to a dropdownlist in many-to-many insert form?

    pschaver

      I'm developing a db with authors and their publications.

       

      I have three tables: authors, publications and the linked author_publication table (many to many relationship)

       

       

      I have successfully used the Many to Many Wizard to make the edit/update detail form work - which provides a Nested Repeat Region showing all publications as checkboxes.

       

       

      So far so good. But I would like to introduce many authors and many publications. The way the insert (and update) form is presented now is that when I add / update an author and I want to add his publications a huge amount of checkboxes is shown. This is not very user-friendly. Is it possible to select and add the publications from a dropdownlist and above that only show the (already) selected publications?

       

      I hope I explained it clearly enough.
