Putting Results in a dialog Field

Qwaletee, I think by now you know the code I am refering to.  After I select the Role and hit OK.  The field RolesForACLName get populated with the names assigned to the role example.

CN=Joe Smoe/OU=TNT/O=Corp; CN=Chris Kringle/OU=TNT/O=Corp

Is there a way that this field on the main form could be a Dialog Field and the two names be [CN] and shown for selection.  It could even be a check box.  The problem I am having they may be 3 users in the same role, but only one needs to respond.

If the main form field is to be dialog field then use formula for keywords option and set to point a hidden field .

Use this hidden field in your dialogbox.

Also wrap the field around @Name([CN];hiddenField) in the dialog field formula

In your setup, what I think would be best is if you did this in the main form, not the subform.  Hide the second field (NamesForACLRole).  Add a new field called SelectNameForRole, an EDITABLE listbox, use formula for choices, and enable refresh choices on document refresh.  The formula for SelectNameForRole choices should be: NamesForACLRole

You shoudl also change the button.  It now just has @DialogBox(...) in it.  Add ;@Command([ViewRefreshFields]) to teh button.

Now, NamesForACLRole is not visible, but does hold the choices for the new field, and the new field allows the user to select a name for the document.  The Refresh causes the new field's choices to update upon return from teh dialog box.

On the first past the form works perfectly, but if I click the dialog button again, the displayed value in SelectNameForRole always reflects the first value.  How would you remove the value and reset it to the current pick?
