4years later we still not have a token multiselect mode ...
is it plan ?
The MultiSelect widget is already a part of the Kendo UI suite. You could find more information of the capabilities of the widget in our Documentation.
Telerik by Progress
we have also the need to have something like the Toke Box in Ajax.
Is there any possiblity to have the same behaviour (free enterable text - creates tag on Enter) in Kendo Combobox or MultiSelect?
Thanks for any example on this
Even if the Kendo ComboBox does allow free text input, it does not offer support for multiple selection or token mode.
On the other hand, the out-of-the-box the MultiSelect does allow multiple selection and also displays its items in token boxes, but it does not allow free text to be entered and transformed to an item. Nevertheless, the behaviour of the widget could be customized so it allows the user to add a free text entry as a new item in its items collection. Such scenario is implemented on the Add new item Demo.
I hope, that this helps. In case you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
i think i did not clarify enough on this.
we want something that statcks items in a row - like the ajax combobox in tokenmode does.
i know it seems not be configurable with the multiselect control - thats ok.
since we have to be able to add multiple strings - and create a "bubble" Or "token" on enter - i think it would be a combobox.
but can you please help me on configuring the control?
i have the Kendo library in use and i really dont know any documentation about this topic :(
thanks & best regards
I am afraid, that the Kendo ComboBox could not be configured to accept multiple items displayed in Token mode. Also, the MultiSelect widget does not allow free text to be added out-of-the-box. The closest functionality to the required is demonstrated on the Add new item demo referenced in my previous reply.
If that does not suite your application scenario, I would suggest you to log a new feature request in our Feedback portal. Based on the support it receives from the community, we will decide on whether to proceed with its implementation or not.
