Description

In metadata edition mask, users don't show that one type of entry is about choosing some predefined values (multiple choice).
As there is no default prompt like "Select options", the user first think about what information to enter before realizing that he just have to select some options.
Moreover the search functionnality should also be integrated to help users finding the values they are looking for - hope that such functionnality is a default one proposed by Joomla

For a better understanding and user experience, I guess that multiple choice element should have a default prompt (i.e. "Select options") and a search mechanism like unique choice element behaviour.

Hi Bruno !

The search is active and works on multi-selects:

The place holder for multiple choices should be present, it is set in chosen JS params :

jQuery(document).ready(function (){
    jQuery('select').chosen({"disable_search_threshold":10,"allow_single_deselect":true,"placeholder_text_multiple":"S\u00e9lectionnez certaines options","placeholder_text_single":"S\u00e9lectionnez une option","no_results_text":"Aucun r\u00e9sultat correspondant"});
});

So there's a defect in JS or CSS in form I guess.
For example, if I unselect a value from a multi-select, the placeholder appears:

TC notice :

  • Place holder seams to be a defect.
  • The search functionnality is working fine : you have to type your search in the field (there is no search field like for unique choice)

So as I understand, such problem appears only on my easySDI implementation...
Could you please confirm that I understand well the TC answer; in such case I will reject this issue...

Thanks
