DropDowns Overview

The DropDowns allow you to choose from a predefined list of options.

The package includes the following components:

  • AutoComplete—Displays a list of suggestions depending on the typed text.
  • ComboBox—Displays a list of predefined options. It allows the user to pick a single value from that list or to enter a custom value through a keyboard input.
  • DropDownList—Displays a list of predefined options and allows the user to pick a single value from that list.
  • MultiSelect—Displays a list of options and allows multiple selections from this list.

Basic Usage

The following example demonstrates the AutoComplete, ComboBox, DropDownList, and MultiSelect components in action.

  template: `
    <div class="example-wrapper" style="min-height: 400px;">
      <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-6 example-col">
