By | February 14, 2022

This blog will help you learn about creating Multi-Select pick-list field using Lightning Web Component thus allowing users to select multiple pick-list values in any standard Salesforce object field.

To implement Multi-Select pick-list we need a very basic UI with two standard lightning web component:

  1. lightning-combo box
  2. lightning-pill

To start with, we will use lightning-combo box to show all pick-list values and can be further carried out through lightning-pill that will help to show selected pick-list values.

Creating basic HTML file:

Multi Select Picklistcmp.html file
Multi Select Picklistcmp.html file

A lightning-pill is used to display a label which contains multi-picklist values; there are contained in links and is also removable as well.

A lightning-combo box is used to select only one option from the pick-list with the use of on change event handler to capture whatever user selects.

Following is the logic used in JavaScript:

handleChange : This method is handling the change on pick-list field. If user is selecting any new value which is not selected before then we are adding that value to allValues list.

handleRemove: This method is removing selected values from all Values using basic methods of Javascript
