Selecting items on continuous forms - solved?

    This one worried me for a while. Most of the suggestions involved:

    # Having a Yes/No field in the table - not possible if the
    recordset is not live and useless for multiuser anyway.

    # Using a temp table or 3rd party grid control - too much hassle.

    So I tried the following for when there are not too many items. If
    there were more, I'd look at an alternative to the collection Csel.

    The recordset is read-only.
    The selections are kept in a local collection Csel, which simply
    contains the IDs of the selected records.

    Put a checkbox on the form as a calculated control, sourced from a
    function passing the record ID to look up Csel. If the item exists
    in Csel, the value passed is true, else false.

    Trap the Mousedown event for the checkbox (the click event won't
    fire, coz it's readonly). If the current record's ID is in Csel,
    remove it. If not, add it. Then do a Me.Recalc.

    Seems to work OK.

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!
