[EP-tech] Re: Advanced Search Page render of large number of choices (such as language).
Hmmm.... I've explored the codebase, and it looks like there's a 'search_input_style' property. It looks like for a 'set' type, it defaults to 'checkbox'. This is tested for here:
...I don't think it's tested for anywhere else. In your field definition, add:
'search_input_style' => 'default',
...and see what happens. You'll have to reload the configuration or restart the webserver.

What I understand we are looking for is if there is a way to have this as a single select drop-down box or a multi-select drop-down box so that the languages field doesn?t take up so much real estate on the page.
