Multi selection list box greyed out RRS feed

  • Question

  • I made a copy of SharePoint's default "Approval" workflow and then edited its approval form in InfoPath to add a multi selection list box (I am showing check boxes) which is reading values from a list.

    When I preview that form in InfoPath then it displays those check boxes as ENABLED. But when I publish that form and then view it in browser then all check boxes are DISABLED or greyed out.

    How to fix this issue?

    The result:
