  • Enable Users to Select Multiple Items From a List

    The KendoReact MultiSelect is a form component that displays a list of options in a popup and allows for multiple items to be selected from this list. Each selected item is rendered as a tag in the input element. The React MultiSelect component contains header and footer elements within the data list, supports virtualization and has the ability to work with custom renderers to customize the look and feel of the component.

  • Data Binding

    The KendoReact MultiSelect can be bound to various forms of data, including datasets of objects, an array of primitive values or binding directly to a single value property. Additionally, the React MultiSelect can bind separate fields to the displayed text and the underlying value.

    See React MultiSelect Data Binding demo

  • Filtering

    The built-in filtering mechanism of the KendoReact MultiSelect automatically reduces the number of available choices in the MultiSelect dropdown. Filtering can be configured in various ways, including "starts with" or "contains" to ensure the most intuitive filtering behavior for any scenario.

  • Custom Tags

    Every selected value in the KendoReact MultiSelect is rendered as a tag. With the custom tags feature, the MultiSelect can customize what to display when an item is selected, including having a single tag representing all selected items.

  • Disabled Items

    You have the flexibility to disable certain items within the React MultiSelect. Once an item is disabled, it cannot be selected as a value for the component, but it might still remain focusable or non-focusable when navigating through the items using the keyboard. See the React MultiSelect Disabled Items demo

  • Custom Rendering

    The KendoReact MultiSelect component provides options for customizing the way the component renders its elements. This includes allowing for custom renderers for each item in the option list, the tags displayed in the input, the header and footer elements, as well as the message when no data is bound to the component.

  • Floating Labels

    Popularized by Material Design, the floating label starts off as a placeholder in an input element only to animate out and float above the input and act as a label. The KendoReact AutoComplete component comes with support for floating labels built-in, no matter what design language you chose to incorporate it with.

  • 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.
