From TWiki.EditTablePlugin docs:

  • Drop down box:
  %VBAR% select, <size>, <option 1>, <option 2>, etc* %VBAR%
  • only one item can be selected

So, this is documented.

However, given that checkboxes are enabled (therefore multi-select is supported, just not in menus) AND given that HTML select supports "multiple", the inability to select more than one item is a deficiency in EditTable.

A documented flaw is nonetheless a flaw.

-- TWiki:Main/VickiBrown - 08 May 2009

The checkboxes type is specially programmed to allow multiple items. The select is documented to support only one, and it is implemented that way.

It would be a useful enhancement to have multi-select for select type. May be your employer can sponsor that enhancement?
