New in Alpha Anywhere: Icons to Indicate Selected Rows in a Multi-Select List Control


With Alpha Anywhere, we are continuously adding new features to meet the needs of developers who are using the platform. With each new update—such as the recent release of Alpha Anywhere 2.0—we're baking-in new features that make it faster and easier to build complete, front-end to back-end, enterprise-level, cross-platform mobile and web business applications.

So when we get feedback from a customer, we listen. Here's a recent email we received regarding the multi-select List control:


I'm Wondering how hard it would be to combine checkboxes with the multi-select List control to indicate a selected row. I like the features of the List control, but the multiple selection with checkboxes is somewhat easier to read than the highlighted color.

 Now, the button List control (and the Checkbox control - configured to render as a Button List) can show an icon on selected items. The List control can also be configured to allow multiple selections (like a Button List or Checkbox), but it does not show an icon on the selected rows to indicate the row has been selected (it shows selected rows using a different row color).

In the videos below, we show how you can easily display an icon on the selected rows. The technique uses a custom CSS class.
