[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:

	https://github.com/eprints/eprints/blob/3.3/perl_lib/EPrints/MetaField/Set.pm#L413

...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.
