Sun Identity Manager Deployment Reference


Displays a multiselection text box, which displays as a two-part object in which a defined set of values in one box can be moved to a selected box. Values in the left box are defined by the allowedValues property, values are often obtained dynamically by calling a Java method such as FormUtil.getResources. The values displayed in the right side of a multiselection box are populated from the current value of the associated view attribute, which is identified through the field name.

The form titles for this two-part object are set through the availabletitle and selectedtitle properties.

If you want a MultiSelect component that does not use an applet, set the noApplet property to true.

See Alternative to the MultiSelect Component for a related discussion.

Note –

If you are running Identity Manager on a system running the Safari browser, you must customize all forms containing MultiSelect components to set the noApplet option. Set this option as follows:

<Display class=’MultiSelect’>
      <Property name=’noApplet’ value=’true’/>

Properties for this display component are:


<Field name=’accounts[LDAP].LDAPDept’ type=’string’>
   <Display class=’MultiSelect’ action=’true’>
      <Property name=’title’ value=’LDAP Department’/>
             <String>International Sales</String>
