I want to save multi-select drop-down in SharePoint field. I already referred few results in this site.

Choice values in SharePoint : Test1, Test2, Test3, Test4, Test5.

From the custom drop-down choice field user will select multiple values I want to save the data in multi-select choice field in SharePoint list.

Now am getting results as:

var testvalue="'Test1','Test2'";

}).then(function(resultdata) {
    idvalue = resultdata.data.Id;
    ShowMsgaddupdate("Data Saved Successfully", "", "Ok");

But am not able to save the item. Its throwing error.

Can you please help me?

  • Can you please add an error you are getting in your question? – Ganesh Sanap Aug 13 '19 at 5:25

You are passing Choices array in wrong way.

You can create your choices array as given below:

var choicesArray = ["Test1", "Test2"];

Then pass it in the items.add() function as:

    Testchoicefield: { results: choicesArray },
    LastModifiedByDisplayName: _DisplayUserName,
    LastModifiedByUserId: _CurrentUserID,
    LastModifiedOn: _modifiedon
}).then(function (resultdata) {
    idvalue = resultdata.data.Id;
    ShowMsgaddupdate("Data Saved Successfully", "", "Ok");

  • Hi, finally able to test and it doesn't work. I get this error "An unexpected 'StartObject' node was found when reading from the JSON reader. A 'PrimitiveValue' node was expected." This is my code where it's breaking 'Status': { results: that.Status}, – OLA Nov 25 '19 at 18:22
  • Can you share the structure of the that.Status with us? So that we can it is correct or not. It should be a plain array of string. – Ganesh Sanap Nov 26 '19 at 2:32

Set multiple value choice field as array like this:

 public render(): void {
          Title: "NewAddedTitle",
          MultipleChoice: {
            results: [ 'Enter Choice #1', 'Enter Choice #2' ]
      }).then(result => {
