Ok, it finally seems to be working! :D

The explode() suggestion was MOSTLY right (or I misunderstood the suggestion, in which case it was COMPLETELY right!)

Trying to set the $value parameter did nothing to change the selected items, which continued to reflect the first value on a comma separated string, no matter what I did.

What I eventually did was this:

function getCMSFields() {

//cast the incoming DB value into an array

$this->Kit_Elements = explode(",", $this->Kit_Elements);

$field = new ListboxField('Kit_Elements', "Kit Elements", $source= $productsMap, '', $size=4, '' );


$fields = parent::getCMSFields();
$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.KitElements", $field);
return $fields;


It DOES seem a tad laborious and just plain weird, but it also seems to be working.

Thanks Will R. for your help and interest! :D
