If found in a list

Hi,

I have a multi select box with checkboxes to multi select from
If I select more than one and clicked on submit the page should reload the previous submition.

this is what I have so far:

<cfquery name="VersionList" datasource="#xx#" username="#xx#" password="#xxx#">
select distinct Version from TestingRules
order by Version asc
</cfquery>

<cfset TempFoundVersionList = "">
<cfif StructKeyExists(Form,'Version') && #form.Version# neq "">
	<cfloop index="vl" list="#form.Version#">
 		<cfif listFind(TempFoundVersionList,vl) eq 0> 
     		<cfset TempFoundVersionList = listAppend(TempFoundVersionList,vl)>
 		</cfif> 
	</cfloop> 
     
 <cfset FoundVersionList = #listQualify(TempFoundVersionList,"'")#> 



      //the output for form.Version :    V9.82,V9.83E 
                
            
<select multiple="multiple" name="Version" id="Version" class="FilterSelect" style="width:270px">
	<CFIF isDefined("VersionList") and #VersionList.RecordCount# gt 0>
     	<cfoutput query="VersionList">
     	<cfif #VersionList.Version# eq #form.Version#>
     		<option value="#VersionList.Version#"  <cfif ListFindNoCase(FoundVersionList)> selected="selected" </cfif> >#VersionList.Version#</option>
     	<cfelse>
     		<option value="#VersionList.Version#">#VersionList.Version#</option>
     	</cfif>
        </cfoutput>
     <cfelse>
     	<cfoutput query="VersionList">
      		<option value="#VersionList.Version#">#VersionList.Version#</option>
      	</cfoutput>
     </CFIF>
		</select>

I'm having a little trouble following the code, so I thought I would illustrate how do to multiple selects using an example.   This is a list of all types of dogs, and another query that shows the dogs that I own.   The select will show all dogs and select just the ones that I own..

	
<!---- this is a list of just the dogs that I own ---->
<cfquery name="MyDogs" datasource="#request.datasource#">
  select dog_id from myDogs where dogOwner_id = #myUserId#
</cfquery>
<cfset myDogIds = valueList(myDogs.dog_id)>
		
		
<!--- this is a list of all dogs ---->
<cfquery name="AllDogs" datasource="#request.datasource#">
  select dog_id, dogName from dogs
</cfquery>


<!--- this select box will show all dogs, and check off the dogs that I own ---->
<select name="dog_id" multiple>
  <cfloop query="AllDogs">
    <option value="#allDogs.dog_id#" <cfif listFind(myDogIds,allDogs.dog_id)>selected</cfif> >#allDogs.dogName </option>
  </cfloop>
</select>

Sorry if I missed the point, but I am not sure what all your code is trying to do.. maybe add some comments if you need more help?

It is only selecting the ones that I select but it also need to display the other version in the list that have not been selected

this is what I have

<select multiple="multiple" name="Version" id="Version" class="FilterSelect" style="width:270px">
	<CFIF (isDefined("VersionList") and #VersionList.RecordCount# gt 0) and (isDefined("form.Version")) >
       	<cfloop list="#form.Version#" index="k" delimiters=",">
     	<cfoutput> 	
            	<cfif not #listfind(FoundVersionList,k)#>		
        			<option value="#k#" selected="selected">111 #k#</option>
               <cfelse> 
     			    <option value="#k#">2222 #k#</option> 
        		</cfif>
        </cfoutput>        
        </cfloop> 
    <cfelse>
     	<cfoutput query="VersionList">
      		<option value="#VersionList.Version#">333 #VersionList.Version#</option>
       </cfoutput>
    </CFIF>
		</select>
