Drop Down Box

Multiple Selection


The DropDownBox widget is an editor that consists of a text field and drop-down content. The content can be anything. In this demo, it is the TreeView widget and the DataGrid widget. This demo also illustrates how to implement multiple selection and how to synchronize the DropDownBox with the nested widgets.

$(function(){ var treeView, dataGrid; var syncTreeViewSelection = function(treeView, value){ if (!value) { treeView.unselectAll(); return; } value.forEach(function(key){ treeView.selectItem(key); }); }; var makeAsyncDataSource = function(jsonFile){ return new{ loadMode: "raw", key: "ID", load: function() { return $.getJSON("../../../../data/" + jsonFile); } }); }; var getSelectedItemsKeys = function(items) { var result = []; items.forEach(function(item) { if(item.selected) { result.push(item.key); } if(item.items.length) { result = result.concat(getSelectedItemsKeys(item.items)); } }); return result; }; $("#treeBox").dxDropDownBox({ value: ["1_1"], valueExpr: "ID", displayExpr: "name", placeholder: "Select a value...", showClearButton: true, dataSource: makeAsyncDataSource("treeProducts.json"), contentTemplate: function(e){ var value = e.component.option("value"), $treeView = $("<div>").dxTreeView({ dataSource: e.component.option("dataSource"), dataStructure: "plain", keyExpr: "ID", parentIdExpr: "categoryId", selectionMode: "multiple", displayExpr: "name", selectByClick: true, onContentReady: function(args){ syncTreeViewSelection(args.component, value); }, selectNodesRecursive: false, showCheckBoxesMode: "normal", onItemSelectionChanged: function(args){ var nodes = args.component.getNodes(), value = getSelectedItemsKeys(nodes); e.component.option("value", value); } }); treeView = $treeView.dxTreeView("instance"); e.component.on("valueChanged", function(args){ var value = args.value; syncTreeViewSelection(treeView, value); }); return $treeView; } }); $("#gridBox").dxDropDownBox({ value: [3], valueExpr: "ID", placeholder: "Select a value...", displayExpr: "CompanyName", showClearButton: true, dataSource: makeAsyncDataSource("customers.json"), contentTemplate: function(e){ var value = e.component.option("value"), $dataGrid = $("<div>").dxDataGrid({ dataSource: e.component.option("dataSource"), columns: ["CompanyName", "City", "Phone"], hoverStateEnabled: true, paging: { enabled: true, pageSize: 10 }, filterRow: { visible: true }, scrolling: { mode: "infinite" }, height: 345, selection: { mode: "multiple" }, selectedRowKeys: value, onSelectionChanged: function(selectedItems){ var keys = selectedItems.selectedRowKeys; e.component.option("value", keys); } }); dataGrid = $dataGrid.dxDataGrid("instance"); e.component.on("valueChanged", function(args){ var value = args.value; dataGrid.selectRows(value, false); }); return $dataGrid; } }); });
