An field-option in Multi-Select field to select multiple field-options in the same field


I was wondering for the Multi-select field in Confiforms, would the following be possible and if so, how should i do it? 

Clicking a bolded option, say 'Red Fruits', and all applicable fruits being automatically added into the multi-select field 



What Fruits do you want? (Field type: Multi-Select) 








Red Fruits 

Orange Fruits

Exotic Fruits

Not sure why you need that... but here is how this can be done (using a simple multi-select field... consider smart multi-select field for big datasets / large number of options)

Hope it helps to understand the concept


Hi Alex,

Thank you for your reply. I had done it previous through referencing the IDs as a comma-separated list (RedFruits=['App','Stra']) and was looking for a more efficient way of doing it. I will look into the smart multi-select field.

Much appreciated, as always.
