Hello!
We use TFS2013. I've installed extension in TFS and added multiselect field in Bug type. In VS2013 I correctly see values with checkboxes, but in browsers there is no checkboxes like standart dropdown field. Can you help me?
Thx!

Hi Vertigo,

Did you upload the control for the web?

You can find the instructions here https://witcustomcontrols.codeplex.com/releases/view/620316 under the title web controls installation.

Hi jjslagace,

Yes, I've installed web extension v.1.2.2.0 and enabled it successfully. Tried IE, FireFox, Chrome but no luck =(

Is the field showing at least?

Could you post your field and workitem definition?

If I recall, there might be a subtle difference that affects only the web...

Yes, I see it like usual droplist but without ckeckboxes
<FIELD name="Some name" refname="My.My.MultiVersions" type="String">
        <HELPTEXT>Some name</HELPTEXT>
        <SUGGESTEDVALUES expanditems="true">
          <LISTITEM value="[2.1]" />
          <LISTITEM value="[2.2]" />
          <LISTITEM value="[2.3]" />
        </SUGGESTEDVALUES>
      </FIELD>
<Control FieldName="My.My.MultiVersions" Type="FieldControl" PreferredType="MultiValueControl" Label="MultiVers" LabelPosition="Left" />
Or I should link here all text from Bug.xml?
Thx!

I'm going from memory here but could you try this: Assign the value "MultiValueControl" to the Type attribut and also remove the PreferrerType attribute from the <Control> definition?

If I recall, the web control does not support the PreferrerType/Type fallback mecanism and needs to have the desired control type specified in the Type attribute.

Stéphane
