Hi, I need to add a custom field with multiselect capability that has a very long list of options. The list is 'nested' so I first looked at the cascading select but that of course doesn't work if you need to select more than one option. So at this point I'm fine with a single list that with entries like "Main Entry 1: Nested Entry 1, Main Entry 1: Nested Entry 2, etc". I still have a problem with the list size (~ 100 options) as it will be unmanageable to use with a normal select. I was thinking that of say the Lable custom field type could be constrained to a predefined list, that might be the ticket, but that doesn't appear to be an option either.
Any ideas or suggestions, would be appreciated. I looked at a third-party custom fields (like MLCS) but they don't seem to be the ticket either.
You might need to create your own new CustomFieldType, which can handle both the logic and the UI for what you need.
