You can obtain the text value of the selected item in the select event of the MultiSelect component. Additionally, we have prepared a sample and provided it below for your reference.

var checkList = new ej.dropdowns.MultiSelect({

  dataSource: window.ddCountryData,

  fields: { text: 'Name'value: 'Code' },

  placeholder: '-선택-',

  mode: 'CheckBox',

  width: '130px',

  showDropDownIcon: true,

  select: function (args) {

    var selectedItemsSpan = document.getElementById('selectedItems');

    var selectedItemText = args.itemData.Name;

    var currentSelectedItems = selectedItemsSpan.innerHTML;

    selectedItemsSpan.innerHTML =

      currentSelectedItems + selectedItemText + ', ';
