The JavaScript ListBox is a graphical user interface for displaying a list of items with multi-selection options. It has a rich appearance and allows users to select one or more items from the list using checkboxes or keyboard interactions. It has several out-of-the-box features, such as data binding, sorting, grouping, reordering, dragging and dropping, UI customization, and accessibility.
