Select Multiple Forms in XenForo?

    using XenForo_Input::ARRAY_SIMPLE works great for pretty much every type of input array. The problem is that it can't handle select multiple forms. How should I be handling these?

    I just want to take all the results and put it in a comma delimited string.

    Not sure what you mean by "multiple forms" (as you can submit only one form at a time). Are you looking for a way to filter the values inside an array that you have already filtered via XenForo_Input::ARRAY_SIMPLE ?

    I'm talking about <select multiple>

    I tested this and it worked just fine:

    <form action="test.php" method="post">
    	<select name="sel1[]" multiple="multiple">
    		<option value="Value1">Value 1</option>
    		<option value="Value2">Value 2</option>
    		<option value="Value3">Value 3</option>
    	<input type="submit" />
    $request = new Zend_Controller_Request_Http();
    $input = new XenForo_Input($request);

    $formInput $input->filterSingle('sel1'XenForo_Input::ARRAY_SIMPLE);

    array(2) {
      [0] => string(6) "Value2"
      [1] => string(6) "Value3"

    I'd guess that you're not naming the input correctly - it needs the "[]" at the end. This is PHP stuff though, not XF. PHP will only see one value from the list if submitted without the square brackets.

    Ahhhh this explains a lot. Thanks for this thread. I left off the []
