Introduced in version 11.3
Previous TYPO3 v11 sprint releases already received some well-received improvements for the page and file tree as well as for the Record Selector. These components now feature super-fast and lightweight techniques such as the underlying SVG-based code. We started tackling another area in TYPO3 v11.3 that requires an overhaul: selecting files and records from a list.
Let’s look at an example: adding images to a page using the “Text and Media” content element. The “Add media file” button displays a modal window to select one or more files from a list. Backend users can now enable a checkbox on the left-hand side for each file, or open a context menu and check/uncheck all elements with one click. They can also toggle the current selection.
You will also find this great functionality in another often used area of the TYPO3 backend: the file list module.
