deprecated class %ZEN.Component.multiSelectSet extends %ZEN.Component.listControl

This is a specialized control that displays a set of checkBoxes based on a list of values.
The list of values is specified by the valueList. This is a csv-list of values that the user can select. If displayList is provided, it is used to provide the displayed captions for the buttons.
If there is an empty value ("") within the items in valueList (e.g., ",A,B,C"), then an additional button will be displayed for the empty value. The caption for this empty value is specified by the emptyCaption.
It is assumed that every value within the set of value is distinct; A valueList containing duplicate items (e.g., "A,A,A") will lead to strange beahavior for the user.
The nominal value of the multiSelectSet is a csv-list of all options currently checked. The order of items appearing in this list will be the same as their listings in the original valueList provided.
It is possible to programmatically set the value of the multiSelectSet to any arbitary value using the setValue() method and providing either a single value or a csv-list of values. If no values in the list provided to the multiSelectSet corresponds to an item in the set of values, then all buttons in the set will be unchecked.
