Happy 2020 fellow developers! We hope it brings health, peace and many successful projects! With the start of the new year we are happy to share with you what Telerik R1 2020 brings to your ASP.NET AJAX applications. Discover more about what's new in Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX – new RadMultiSelect component, updated Virtual Classroom Training Video Series, and improvements in documentation and Knowledge Base!
The RadMultiSelect Control displays a list of options and allows you to make multiple selections from this list. It supports custom rendering of popup items and tags, header and footer elements, virtualization, and configurable options for controlling the list look and feel.
The MultiSelect Component supports both server-side (SqlDataSource, List<T> or DataTable) and client-side binding (web service).
The MultiSelect Component allows binding to a grouped data source and have dropdown list items grouped in a logical way.
You can completely customize the MultiSelect component and its items rendering by using templates.
The component gives you options to manage the way the pop-up is rendered for the following templates:
The Virtualization feature of the MultiSelect component will enable you to display large datasets in a highly performant way.
Other handy options of the MultiSelect component are the ‘Single’ and ‘Multiple’ tags, which allow you to customize the way selected values are displayed – either as total number of selected items (count), or as a list of selected values.
The RadMultiSelect comes with 21 skins like Material, Bootstrap and Metro to help you fit and adapt the component to match the needs of your website.
In addition to all the above, the MultiSelect component supports Keyboard Navigation and can render its content in a right-to-left direction for languages that require that, such as Arabic, Hebrew, Chinese, or Japanese.
