Overview

The ASP.NET Core Dropdown List is a quick replacement of the HTML select tags. It has a rich appearance and allows users to select a single value that is non-editable from a list of predefined values. It has several out-of-the-box features, such as data binding, filtering, grouping, UI customization, accessibility, and preselected values.

Data binding

You can bind data from a variety of data sources in an array from primitive data, JSON data collections, or a remote data source using different kinds of adaptors such as OData, OData V4, URL, JSON, and Web API. The control uses the data manager to manage data and has customization options for data requests and processing.


Filtering and searching drop-down lists

The ASP.NET Core Dropdown List Control has built-in filtering support with a rich set of filtering configurations available to match all your application needs. Enable the filtering functionality to show the search input box in the drop-down pop-up list.

We do not sell the ASP.NET Core Dropdown List separately. It is only available for purchase as part of the Syncfusion ASP.NET Core suite, which contains over 70 ASP.NET Core components, including the Dropdown List. A single developer license for the Syncfusion Essential Studio for ASP.NET Core suite costs $995.00 USD, including one year of support and updates. On top of this, we might be able to offer additional discounts based on currently active promotions. Please contact our sales team today to see if you qualify for any additional discounts.

You can find our ASP.NET Core Dropdown List demo here.

No, our 70+ ASP.NET Core components, including Dropdown List, are not sold individually, only as a single package. However, we have competitively priced the product so it only costs a little bit more than what some other vendors charge for their Dropdown List alone. We have also found that, in our experience, our customers usually start off using one of our products and then expand to several products quickly, so we felt it was best to offer all 70+ ASP.NET Core components for a flat fee of $995/developer. On top of this, we might be able to offer additional discounts based on currently active promotions. Please contact our sales team today to see if you qualify for any additional discounts.

No, this is a commercial product and requires a paid license. However, a free community license is also available for companies and individuals whose organizations have less than $1 million USD in annual gross revenue and five or fewer developers.

A good place to start would be our comprehensive getting started documentation.
