LightSwitch Tutorial – Create a Multi-Select Pick List

We’ll show you how you can easily create a pick list that allows selecting multiple items, work those items, show what’s selected when you go back into the pick list.  It’ll quickly become part of all your projects!

In this tutorial we show how to take our core project, and change the pick list for adding/removing permissions from Security Roles.  Allowing the Admin to remove/add permissions in one swoop vs. having to keep popping up a pick list for each.

So check it out at our tutorial site:  LightSwitch.CodeWriting.Tips

Here are the screen shots of what you’ll get, open the picker.
