SysLookupMultiSelectCtrl use with keyboard

Posted on by 15

Hi all.

we implemented successfully a multi select lookup, using syslookupmultiselectctrl 

It works fine, but customer wants to ues it with keyboard or mouse.

In default lookup, you open with curser down, select and leave with return key.

This is nearly what customer wants: Open with cursor, select/unselect with space, trigger Button / close it  and use selected values with return key.

Is there any solution for this?
We are using AX 365, actual version.

Thank You for any help.

    Hi Gerhard,

    To be able to select multiple record with the keyboard, while selecting the items, you should hold the Ctrl button. Then you can use the arrow up and down keys and space to select multiple records. After selected all records, you can use the Tab key (multiple hits) to set the focus on the Select button. Then use Enter to close the lookup.
