Local Binding

The Telerik UI ListBox for ASP.NET Core enables you to bind it to local arrays of data.

When you use complex data objects, use the DataTextField and DataValueField properties to notify the ListBox about your preferred binding behavior.

        .Name("optional")
        .Toolbar(toolbar =>
        {
            toolbar.Position(ListBoxToolbarPosition.Right);
            toolbar.Tools(tools => tools
                .MoveUp()
                .MoveDown()
                .TransferTo()
                .TransferFrom()
                .TransferAllTo()
                .TransferAllFrom()
                .Remove()
            );
        })
        .ConnectWith("selected")
        .BindTo(ViewBag.Attendees) // Bind the ListBox to a collection
    )
