Needed: Multi-select OptionDialog

It is needed in my application. Any idea to multi-select using OptionDialog or Picker , but not TableView?

    Well if you mean multi-select picker, each column can have it's own value, which in a sense is selecting multiple items.

    But I figure that's not what you are meaning and I haven't ever seen a true multi-select implemented even in a native application (have you?). Typically if you haven't seen it, there's a reason it hasn't been done.

    The typical approach is to create a tableview and when the user clicks add check marks to the end. Then add a button to finalize the selection. You could even create your own little view window to lie on top of the current window to emulate the dialog.
