Multi-Select Dropdown List Box-type Entries for DataWindows

How to do it

We make customized electronic medical record formats for physicians. We've been using multi-select list boxes to enter various choices together as part of a single column in many DataWindows in our applications. They help enter some interrelated data faster without creating an independent table and/or nested report.

A review of the need, outcome, and sample code are provided with a plea that a DataWindow edit control for multi-select list boxes should be available in PowerBuilder itself. It would further enhance the wide variety of entry choices for developers.
