The RadDropDownList does not support multi selection. If you need such functionality you could consider using the RadComboBox, as it allows the selection of multiple items by having its CheckBox support
I noticed that you have set RadAutoCompleteBox as a thread product but you are asking about the RadDropDownList, so I changed the product to the latter.
