Rendering of multi-selection list

Michael Römer
Hi everyone,

I'm using the following xml syntax to populate a multi-selection list in
our Galaxy Server:

<param name="genes" type="select" label="Some list" multiple="true">
  <options from_file="some_list.txt">
    <column name="value" index="0" />
    <column name="name" index="0" />
  </options>
</param>

Depending on the number of entries in the file some_list.txt the list is
rendered differently:

* with less than 20 entries I get a list displaying all items
* with more than 20 entries the list is rendered as a drop-down list
* with a lot more (I don't know the exact cutoff, but like 1000+) I get
the same rendering as with less than 20 entries

I would like galaxy to render the list as a drop-down list independent
of the number of entries. Is there a way to do this?

Regards,
Michael

There is a patch in this e-mail thread to disable this behavior for all tools:

Hope this helps,

Re: Rendering of multi-selection list

Hi John,

Thanks, this does indeed change the behaviour to be consistent. However,
this is exactly the reverse of what I would like to do. I would actually
like to replace all select boxes by the jQuery-based widget.
Particularly for large lists I find the select2 to be much more
user-friendly.

Is there a way to achieve this?

Regards,
Michael
