    Is it possible to stop opening dropdown when the multiselect box clicked?

    We plan to bind multiselect control to a webservice and only want to open the dropdown when user enters 2 characters at least.

    Hello Serkan,

    The MultiSelect has a minLength option that specifies the minimum characters required for the filtering to start. Also the popup will not open until this condition is matched. Here is a demo that demonstrates the option in action.
