The Dropdown Tree control is a text-box control that allows users to select a single value or multiple values from hierarchical data in a tree-like structure. It has several out-of-the-box features, such as data binding, checkboxes, templates, UI customization, accessibility, and preselected values.

Data binding

Bind data to the Dropdown Tree control from different data sources. Data can be local or in any remote service and fetched using different kinds of adapters like OData, OData V4, URL, JSON, and web API.

Render modes

The Dropdown Tree control has different render modes to visualize selected items.

Box mode

The selected items are displayed as a chip (box) in the Dropdown Tree input box.

Delimiter mode

The selected items are displayed with the delimiter character in the Dropdown Tree input box.

Default mode

The default mode is a combination of both the box and delimiter modes. When the control is in focus, selected items will be displayed as chips similar to the box mode. Otherwise, they will be displayed with a delimiter character as in the delimiter mode.

Template mode

The selected items are displayed with the given custom template value instead of the selected item text in the Dropdown Tree input box.

JavaScript Dropdown Tree with checkboxes.


The JavaScript Dropdown Tree control provides built-in support for checkboxes, allowing users to select more than one item. Enabling the checkboxes and autocheck functionality makes the parent and child items dependent on each other. This control also provides a Select All option in the pop-up.

Multiple selection

The Dropdown Tree control allows users to select more than one item in the pop-up using the multiselection functionality.

Header template

Design your own header for the pop-up tree using the header template.
