    Hello

    Which control is best suited when you need to make multiple selections of the same list?
    recently I made a ticket to ask how to make a multicheckbox combobox. I recieved a working solution but was also told the control was not designed for multi selections.

    Then my logical next question is. what is? What if i have to create statistics for multiple users or multiple stores.
    and what would you recommend when you have to make a multiple selection when you list contains of 500 customers or stores.

    Hi Stijn Vandeputte,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    At the moment the only control designed to handle multiple selection is RadListControl. Once you have set the SelectionMode property of RadListControl to MultiSelect or MultiExtended, you will be able to select multiple items.

    However, your post implies that you would like to display the items in a control which supports the drop down menu. If this is your case, the most natural control to use will be RadDropDownList. Although the multiselect behavior of this control is not by design, such customization could be achieved. This approach is demonstrated in the Create New Items example in our Demos (when installed: Start Button >>  Programs >> Telerik >> RadControls for WinForms [version] >> Run Demos).

    While developing your application, please have in mind that the best control to use for multiple selection is RadListControl. However, if you insist on using RadDropDownList, please feel free to use the example code. In case you encounter any difficulties customizing further the control, please let me know. I will be glad to assist you.

    All the best,
    Boryana

    Hi M Kumar,

    Thank you for writing.

    The most used multi-selection controls are RadGridView and RadCheckedDropDownList. The following articles are showing how you can use this controls:
    In addition, we have an example for the RadgridView selection in our demo application (see attached image)

    Let me know if you have other questions.
