Hi Chaitanya,

Thanks for using Syncfusion products.

Query: How to clear Multi Drop Down list on button click (Ex: Reset Button).

We can use the public method “clearText()” to clear the values in Dropdownlist. To access this public method we need to use the object of dropdownlist. Please refer the below code,

        function clearValue(e) {

            //Object for Dropdownlist is created

            var target = $('#skillsets').data("ejDropDownList");

            //clearText method is called to clear the values in Dropdownlist
