Can somebody tell me what is the use of LookupMulti in Sharepoint 2013 and how to implement this with visual studio 2012?

Can we use this for chaining purpose ?

For example, I have 2 lists country and states. If I select one country, for eg India, then will it show me the states from India only? If I select particular state then it should show me cities in that state only? Is it possible with LookupMulti?


The multilookup field is a column that points to another list, and allows you to enter multiple items into the current item from that list.

It will not give you cascading/filtered lookups like you want. You need to do that in InfoPath, JavaScript, or write your own code to do that.

This blog post has many references to help with cascading dropdowns.
