Drop Down Box

Single Selection

The DropDownBox component is an editor that consists of a text field and drop-down content. In this demo, the content is the TreeView and the DataGrid in the single selection mode.

The following instructions show how to synchronize the DropDownBox with any other embedded DevExtreme component:

  1. Specify data sources
    The DropDownBox's and embedded component's data sources can be the same or different. If they are different, the embedded component's key field should be present in the DropDownBox's data source.

  2. Specify which data field provides the DropDownBox's values and the embedded component's keys
    Assign the field's name to the DropDownBox's valueExpr property and to the key property of the embedded component's store.

  3. Synchronize the DropDownBox's value and the embedded component's selection

    1. Select data items according to the DropDownBox's initial value. To do this, assign the value to the embedded component's selectedRowKeys/selectedItemKeys property (see the example with the DataGrid below). If the embedded component does not have such properties, implement the onContentReady handler (the example with the TreeView).
    2. Implement the DropDownBox's onValueChanged handler to update the selection when the value changes.
    3. Implement the embedded component's onSelectionChanged handler to update the DropDownBox's value when the selection changes.
