Select multiple alternatives for a filter with a specified list of options
A property of an item that can have only a few distinct values are usually displayed as a dropdown list that includes all possible options by the filtering system in the web client. For example the status of a job has
Error and a few other options. The drawback with this system is that it is only possible to filter on ONE value at a time. This was previously the case for all filters but #762 solved this for regular text input filters and #965 for enumerated annotations.
It should be possible to select more than one option in the list of options. It should be possible to specify if the filter should include or exclude all items that matches the selected options.
To implement this the <select> tag can't be used. It has a "multiple" attribute that in principle would solve the issue, but the list don't display well and they are hard to use. We probably need to use some fancy scripting similar to the annotations case.
