Add Items to ListBox

I try to add some items to a listbox with value and text:

                    .ListBoxFields(f => f.Text("Name").Value("Value")
                    .ClientSideEvents(e => e.CheckChange("LocationsChanged"))

                listbox.ejListBox("addItem", {Value: location.Id, Name: location.Name + " " + location.PostCode + " " + location.City });

And I get this:

How can add a object to the listbox?

Kind regards,

Hi Carsten, 

Sorry for the inconvenience caused. 

We were able to reproduce the reported issue with addItem, which has been already fixed in the Volume 3, 2017( version and above. Hence we suggest you to upgrade to our latest version to get this issue resolved.

Hi Arun,

unfortunately it doesn't work. Indeed I can add items, but they not stored as expected. I can't get the value back out of the selected items:


In the property text and value are the same values.

Kind regards,

Hi Carsten,  
Thanks for your update.   
We have checked the reported scenario and we can reproduce your issue. As you have said, items can be added but cannot be stored and this is because you have not given the datasource property to the ListBox. Adding items to Listbox when the datasource is not given, will add the items by taking the given object’s text value through appending the text in the ListBox <ul>. Also, you cannot take the value field because the given text value is considered as the value field in this case. So, we suggest to bind an empty datasource to the ListBox and then you can add items to it. Please find the below code snippets.   
           dataSource:[],    // Bind an empty datasource   
            fields: {   
            text: "Name" ,value:"Value" }   
          $("#selectgroup").ejListBox("addItem", {   
            Name: location.Name, Value: location.Id  });   
Please try the given workaround, and if you still face any issue let us know, so that we would help you out better.
