Hi Klaus,

We currently do not plan to ship the "Selector" widget as one of the 
built-in widgets in LiveCode 8.0.  I'll be removing it in a forthcoming 
Developer Preview release.

We're focussing our widget efforts for the initial release of LiveCode 8 
onto a small number of high-quality widgets, and we don't feel that the 
"Selector" widget should be one of them.

Of course, that means that we are not planning to make any enhancements 
to it.

However, don't let that stop you from taking the "Selector" widget's 
source code and using it to build a new open source widget that does the 
same thing, but better!
