The JavaScript ComboBox control is a drop-down list with editable textbox that also allows users to choose an option from a predefined pop-up list. It can be used as an alternative to the HTML select tag and has several out-of-the-box features such as data binding, filtering, grouping, cascading, templates, UI customization, pop-up list customization, and more.

HTML5 ComboBox data binding from different data sources

Data binding

Bind data from different data sources in an array or list of primitive data, JSON data collections, or remote data sources using adapters such as OData, OData V4, URL, JSON, and Web API.

The control uses the Essential JS 2 data manager to manage data, and also has customization options for data requests and processing.

Custom value

The editable combo box allows the entry of a custom value when the option the user searched for is not available in the pop-up list. Also, you can set a value for the combo box or get the selected value from the combo box at any time through the interactive APIs.

JavaScript ComboBox Grouping of pop-up list items based on category

Grouping with category

Group the pop-up list items with a corresponding category that makes it easy for users to pick an item quickly from the drop-down, and also improves the visual experience for users.


The autofill option allows users to easily search through the options in the combo box. When a user types a query string to search, the available matching options will be filled automatically.

Cascading combo boxes

No, our 1,800+ components and frameworks for web, mobile, and desktop, including our JavaScript ComboBox, are not sold individually. They are only available as part of a team license. However, we have competitively priced the product, so it only costs a little bit more than what some other vendors charge for their ComboBox control 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 1,800+ components and frameworks for a subscription fee that starts at $395 per month for a team of 5 developers. Additionally, we might be able to offer discounts based on currently active promotions. Please contact our product specialists 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, 5 or fewer developers, and 10 or fewer total employees.

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