Multiple Selection

DropDownBox is an advanced editor whose drop-down window can include other components.

DevExtreme ships with multiple other drop-down editors. To find out which editor best suits your task, review the following article: How to Choose a Drop-Down Editor.

If the UI component embedded into the DropDownBox component's drop-down window allows multiple selection, synchronize the component's value with the state of selected items as demonstrated in the following demo: Single Selection.
