Tag Mode

RadMultiSelect provides options for displaying the items as individual (multiple) tags and as a single, summary tag. The available modes are (you can see them in Figure 1):

  • Single - renders only one tag that shows the number of the selected values
  • Multiple - renders a tag for every selected value. This is the default tag mode.


Every TagMode has a specific TagTemplate value. You can control the content of the rendered tags by customizing TagTemplate value.

Example 1: RadMultiSelect with single tag mode

<telerik:RadMultiSelect ID="RadMultiSelect1" runat="server" Filter="Contains" Width="240px"
    DataTextField="text" DataValueField="value" TagMode="Single">
        <telerik:MultiSelectItem Text="Apples" Value="1"></telerik:MultiSelectItem>
        <telerik:MultiSelectItem Text="Oranges" Value="2"></telerik:MultiSelectItem>
        <telerik:MultiSelectItem Text="Bananas" Value="3"></telerik:MultiSelectItem>
        <telerik:MultiSelectItem Text="Cherries" Value="4"></telerik:MultiSelectItem>
