    How can I limit the number of choices in the Visual Multi Select Gadget?

    Asked by DoraAlmassy on October 02, 2015 at 01:27 AM

    I would like to allow users to drag only 3 options from a longer list on the left to the right side. How can I do it? 

    Thank you!

    At the moment it is not possible to limit selection using the visual multi select widget.

    You can consider using the check-box in drop-down option, this allows you to place a maximum limit on the selections.

    After some bit of research, I found a workaround by one of my colleagues on how you can limit the selections.

    Kindly refer to this thread for the workaround
