The MultiSelect widget can be configured to render the selected tags initially without the need of binding the data source (autoBind
: false). To accomplish this task, you will need to set the value of the widget to a list of objects
instead of a list of primitive values. Check the value option
for more information. Refer to this online demo
to see how this can be accomplished in JSP.
