The Kendo UI for jQuery DropDownTree is a form component that renders data in a tree-like structure within a DropDown component. The user can click the dropdown and then choose a single predefined value. It is a richer version of the <select> HTML element and supports data binding, filtering and templates.
The jQuery DropDownTree enables you to bind it to various forms of data, including datasets of complex items (objects) or an array of primitive items. Data can be locl or remote. As a part of this binding, fields can be defined to represent the text displayed to the user as well as a separate underlying value to be used by developers.
Give users an intuitive way to select multiple items with checkboxes. When a box is checked, the selected item will populate in the field and will be accompanied by a “delete” icon.
Help users narrow their list and find items by allowing them to filter. With this feature enabled, a filter box will appear at the top of the list and the list will be narrowed as characters are typed.
Out of the box, the Kendo UI for jQuery DropDownTree renders items as plain text. You can utilize templates to create a custom layout for each element, including the list items, the list value, the header and footer areas, as well as the message displayed when no data is connected to the DropDownTree.
Improve accessibility and productivity with keyboard-only navigation. This component supports keyboard navigation to help navigate and interact with items.
