Drop Down Box

Multiple Selection

If the UI component embedded into the DropDownBox allows multiple selection, synchronize the DropDownBox value with the selected items. Synchronization instructions are the same for every selection mode.

In this demo, the DataGrid's selection.mode and TreeView's selectionMode properties are used to enable multiple selection.

Copy to CodePen
$(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); } }); }; $("#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.getDataSource(), 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 selectedKeys = args.component.getSelectedNodeKeys(); e.component.option("value", selectedKeys); } }); 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.getDataSource(), columns: ["CompanyName", "City", "Phone"], hoverStateEnabled: true, paging: { enabled: true, pageSize: 10 }, filterRow: { visible: true }, scrolling: { mode: "virtual" }, 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; } }); });
