    I created a profile where people can add their name contact number and select
    from a drop-down menu 1 skill item. However, if they want to select more
    than 1 item from the skill drop-down menu how do I make that available to
    them? Thanks!

    The ComboBox (which is the Access control with drop-down capability) does
    not support multiple selections. The List Box has a Multi-Select Option, but
    does not natively have a drop-down capability. One way you could do this is
    to use a Text Box behind the ListBox, set the List Box's Visible Property to
    No, and in the Text Box's GotFocus event, just set the List Box's Visible
    Property to True.

    Then, of course, you might have to decide under what conditions you want
    that List Box to return to invisibility.

    Simplest way, of course, is to give up some screen real estate and just use
    a ListBox, which always shows multiple rows.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
