      Multi choice fields (SPFieldMultiChoice) look terrible in display form (just a basic array separated by a semicolon ;)..

      Choice 1;Choice 2;Choice 3

      I know JSON can do it in a list view, is there a way to at least separate them into a new line in the Display form?

      Choice 1
      Choice 2
      Choice 3

      You can straighten it up by using this code:

      function fixMultichoiceDisplay(fin){
          var p = jQuery("#dffs_"+fin+" td.ms-formbody")
          p.html(p.text().split("; ").join("<br>"));
      }
      // Use it like this
      fixMultichoiceDisplay("Your_Field_Internal_Name");

      Hi Alexander,

      This has been working great, but did cause an issues in another rule we did not immediately notice.

      The rule checks the multi-choice field (same internal field name used in the code above)
      IF XXX equals one of the values XXX, it hides/shows a tab.

      When I add this JavaScript, the rules stops working.
      If I remove it, the rule works again.

      I guess once the choices have a <br> inserted instead of ; it breaks the rule somehow.

      Any quick workarounds you could suggest?

      Kind Regards,
      Paul

      Hi,
      I think you can work around this by delaying the fixMultichoiceDisplay function until after the processing of the rules have finished.

      Try it like this:

      function dffs_ready(){
          fixMultichoiceDisplay("Your_Field_Internal_Name");
      }

      Let me know how this works out.

      Alexander
