Understanding People picker selection set

Hi All,

Many times we require setting properties on people editor control for selection set.

Some wants to allow only users to be selected and others want group also to be selected.

Well, here are options that you can use as property with people editor control.

User- Only peoples

SPGroup – Groups of SharePoint site

DL – Distribution list

SecGroup – Security groups

If you want to allow user to select for example user as well as SPGroup, you can use comma between selection set. Examples are shown below.
