query results field display problems

sam detweiler (12.5k6195201) | asked Mar 15 '12, 9:47 a.m.
I have a multi-select list (string over enum), and I need to show the values of the selected items in the query results..

I currently get the string of all internal literal names.. ipfunctionalarea.literal.l9, etc....

I only want the one (or 1st one) selected.

If I show the enum, I get the 1st entry there all the time.

any ideas welcomed

Hi Sam, this has been discussed in the forums. The reason is that multiselect is implemented on presentation level and not backed in the repository yet. The only workaround that is suggested is to manually rename the literals in the process XML e.g. make the literal equal to the value. I am not sure what happens if you do that after creating work items and using the literals.
