MultiColumnComboBox JSP Tag Overview

The MultiColumnComboBox JSP tag is a server-side wrapper for the Kendo UI MultiColumnComboBox widget.

Getting Started

The Basics

There are two ways to bind a Kendo UI MultiColumnMultiColumnComboBox:

Configuration

Below are listed the steps for you to follow when configuring the Kendo UI MultiColumnComboBox for binding to data, passed as a model attribute in Spring MVC.

Step 1 Make sure you followed all the steps from the introductory article on Telerik UI for JSP.

Step 2 Create a new action method and pass the Products table to the View.

Example
    @RequestMapping(value = {"index"}, method = RequestMethod.GET)
    public String index(Model model) {
        model.addAttribute("products", product.getList());

        return "web/multicolumncombobox/index";
    }

Step 3 Add the Kendo UI taglib mapping to the page.

Example
    <%@taglib prefix="kendo" uri="http://www.kendoui.com/jsp/tags"%>

Step 4 Add a server-bound MultiColumnComboBox.

Example
    <kendo:multicolumncombobox name="productMultiColumnComboBox" taTextField="productName" dataValueField="productId" filter="startswith">
        <kendo:dataSource data="${products}"></kendo:dataSource>
    </kendo:multicolumncombobox>

Event Handling

Subscribe to Events

You can subscribe to all events exposed by Kendo UI MultiColumnComboBox by the handler name.

Example
<kendo:multicolumncombobox name="productMultiColumnComboBox" dataTextField="productName" dataValueField="productId" change="multicolumncombobox_change">
    <kendo:dataSource data="${products}">
    </kendo:dataSource>
</kendo:multicolumncombobox>

<script>
    function multicolumncombobox_change() {
        //Handle the change event
    }
</script>

Reference

Existing Instances

You are able to reference an existing MultiColumnComboBox instance via the jQuery.data(). Once a reference is established, you are able to use the MultiColumnComboBox API to control its behavior.

Example
//Put this after your Kendo MultiColumnComboBox tag declaration
<script>
$(function() {
    // Notice that the Name() of the multicolumncombobox is used to get its client-side instance
    var multicolumncombobox = $("#productMultiColumnComboBox").data("kendoMultiColumnComboBox");
});
</script>
