I am creating a document to use as a template for medical notes. I want to be able to tab from input field to input field and make appropriate selections. In some cases it is possible that I would need to select more than one item from a list. Is there any way to make this happen? Thanks in advance.
Yes, this is possible. The easiest way is to insert a ListBox and enable the "MultiSelect" option:
After inserting the ListBox, right-click on it to open the Context Menu:
Control" to open the ListBox properties and set "
Multiselect" to "
Alternatively, you could use a set of checkboxes, but this works only if there only a few values to display and to select. For a longer list of values, you should choose a ListBox.
To populate the ListBox with Data, you will have to bind it to a Data Source. LibreOffice will ask for the DataSource when inserting the control. You can still add the required information using the "
Data" tab of the control's properties:
In this example, i've selected the "Bibliography" datasource (a LO Base Database that ships with LO) when i inserted the first form control. Then, i selected the "
Author" field from the "
If you didn't select a datasource yet, you can set the datasource later by selecting "´Form
" from the control's context menu, tab "data`":
