I'm not sure this is the best place for my question, but I couldn't add another post to the forum in the sample area....
Here is my issue. When the user selects the arrow to drop down the combo box, they see all the available checkboxes and corresponding item text as expected. However, if they click the item text and not the checkbox, then the text of the item they clicked appears in the "main area" of the combo box. This does not select the checkbox.
So what is happening is users are getting confused. They think they have made a selection, the text of that item has appeared in the main combo box area, but in fact it has not selected the checkbox and is subsequently not inserted as a selection.
Best case for this issue is to somehow disable the ability to select the item text. Then the user would be forced to check the checkbox. If they accidentally click the item text, nothing happens and that text does not show in the main combo box area.
Alternate work around would be if they did accidentally hit the item text, then it forces the checkbox to be checked.
A sample of my application can be found here: http://feedback.phf.org/corecompetencies
This is a simple prototype and does not have any functionality.
Any suggestions to fix this issue are welcome.
