    The Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC ComboBox control enables filtering and selecting from a list of predefined values, as well as option to values to an existing list. A richer version of the standard HTML select, MVC ComboBox supports local and remote data binding, filtering, item templates, virtualization for performance boosts, and configurable options for controlling the list behavior.

  • Data Binding

    The ComboBox UI component provides extensive flexibility when it comes to data binding. You can choose between AJAX, server, local, remote and even custom binding.  

    To learn more about them and see how it’s done visit the documentation.

  • Server and Client Filtering

    Take advantage of the server and client-side filtering of the ComboBox component. You can either filter the control to display only items “starting with” or “containing” a certain text.

  • Grouping

    The built-in grouping functionality of the ComboBox makes it easier for users to navigate the list and find the items they want to choose quickly. For example, you can group cities by countries or items by categories.

  • Templates

    Using templates grants you full control over the appearance of items, values and pop-up headers in the ComboBox. You can also customize the templates to fit your project’s needs. The ComboBox component provides four templating options: 
    • Item Template manages how list items are rendered.
    • Header Template defines how the popup header is displayed.
    • Footer Template manages the way the popup footer is rendered.
    • No-Data Template displays no templates in the popup.

    Learn more about all ASP.NET MVC ComboBox Templating options in our documentation

  • Cascading ComboBox

    Cascading ComboBox lets you guide your users’ journey by enabling related lists of items to cascade from one another. For example, it can be used to let users choose their Country, then browse regions within the country to find the desired one, which will filter the last ComboBox to show only cities within that region and allow users to select their preferred one.

  • Floating Label

    Enable a smoother and more efficient user experience with the UI for ASP.NET MVC ComboBox floating label option. You can save form space by adding a label that floats above the input, ensuring end-users don’t lose context.

  • Adaptive Mode

    Set the AdaptiveMode parameter to AdaptiveMode.Auto to enable a mobile-friendly rendering of the ComboBox suggestion list popup. This mode triggers the picker component to automatically adapt to the current size of the screen and changes its rendering accordingly.

  • ComboBox Virtualization

    The ComboBox, like many other ASP.NET MVC components, supports virtualization. This can be very useful when handling large datasets as the component renders a fixed number of items and, if  scrolled later on, it takes the rest of the items and displays them.

  • Events

    The ComboBox component fires various OnClick and OnSelect events. Some of them include Open, Close, Select, Filtering, Change and more.
