  • Overview

    The jQuery MultiColumnComboBox is a form component that lets you choose from a table-structured list of options from a popup. It is a richer version of the <select> element and supports data binding, filtering, templates, and the entering of custom values.

    See the jQuery MultiColumnComboBox Overview demo

  • Data Binding

    The MultiColumnComboBox supports binding of data objects to fill columns of data from local or remote sources. All you need to do is define text, value, and columns and the MultiColumnComboBox will fill in the popup table for you.

    Read the jQuery MultiColumnComboBox Data Binding documentation

  • Filtering

    Ensure users have an intuitive experience when looking for info with the built-in filtering feature. It helps you reduce the available data items inside the dropdown and you can configure the filtering settings by including conditional rules such as “starts with” or “contains”. You can also set default filters on the server level.

    See the jQuery MultiColumnComboBox Filtering demo

  • Virtualization

    The jQuery MultiColumnComboBox can handle large datasets without compromising performance. It comes with built-in virtualization that can easily process hundreds of thousands of data items by loading information as the user scrolls.

    See the jQuery MultiColumnComboBox Virtualization demo

  • Floating Label

    Providing a smoother and more efficient experience to end-users is available to you with the MultiColumnComboBox floating label feature. It allows you to add a label that moves above the input upon clicking, thus saving space and retaining the context of the form field.

    See the jQuery MultiColumnComboBox Floating Label demo

  • Grouping

    Organize data in categories to easily skim datasets. You can define what field in your data is responsible for the group and the component will automatically group the underlying data accordingly.

    See the jQuery MultiColumnComboBox Grouping demo

  • Templates

    Out of the box, the MultiColumnComboBox renders items as plain text. You can use templates to create custom layouts for every element of the component including columns, headers, footers, groups, and even elements with no data.

    See the jQuery MultiColumnComboBox Templates demo

  • Cascading MultiColumnComboBoxes

    Use multiple MultiColumnComboBoxes to help users drill down to the data they need. In this scenario selections in each combo box will filter the available options in the next.

    See the Cascading jQuery MultiColumnComboBox demo

  • Add New Item

    The MultiColumnComboBox includes a text field in which users can input text when looking for items. If the item is not found, the component will automatically present the user with a “Add New Item” button that will update the list.

    See the jQuery MultiColumnComboBox Add New Item demo

  • Prefix and Suffix Adornments

    Elevate user interactivity leveraging the option for adding prefix and suffix adornments. These are custom items, usually an icon or button, inside the field before or after the input area. Typical prefix adornments are currency symbols or unit indicators, while suffix adornments are often used for password visibility toggles, formatting or clearing the input. 

    See the jQuery MultiColumnComboBox Prefix and Suffix demo

  • Keyboard Navigation

    Improve accessibility and productivity with keyboard-only navigation. This component supports keyboard navigation to help navigate and interact with items.
