Customize Multi-Select Widget to Enumerate Selection?

Hi All,

Completely Love the new Multi-Select capabilities of the filter Widget.

But when using multiple multi-select filters it is sometimes difficult to remember

the selection criteria applied. (without reopening the pull-down)

Currently when a filtered set is formed, the filter Pull-down says e.g. "2 selected".

Notice how I changed the hint field to demo the questioned solution...

Do you think it would be possible to modify the "hint" field to hold the values of the selected items?

Potential modification

Inspecting the source elements = 

<div class="hint" data-dojo-attach-point="hintNode">John Deere, Terragator</div>

Maybe the close pull-down event could recalculate the particular "hint" field?

Thanks for your consideration!

It appears that the "hint" filed has unlimited capabilities to hold a long list...
