jqxComboBox represents a widget that contains a list of selectable items displayed in a drop-down. Users can enter information in the text box portion and search for a specific item. The widget comes with built-in auto-complete support. It performs exceptionally well with thousands of items and supports keyboard navigation and rich list items visualization. We designed and built the jqxComboBox widget from scratch to deliver the visual appearance, and feature richness that professional software developers demand.

Great Performance

Our jQuery ComboBox offers an intuitive and easy-to-use interface. It supports full UI virtualization which minimizes the number of DOM elements that need to be rendered and ensures unbeatable performance in scenarios with thousands of list items.

Data Binding

jqxComboBox has a built-in data binding logic designed to support various data sources and operate with large datasets. It supports several data binding modes optimized for common scenarios:
  • Local Data - load the ComboBox from a local array of objects.
  • Xml Data - load the ComboBox from XML data source using AJAX.
  • JSON Data - load the ComboBox from JSON data source using AJAX.
  • CSV Data - load the ComboBox from CSV.
  • Tab Data - load ComboBox from Tab-Delimited (TSV).
  • Remote Data - load the ComboBox using JSONP. JSONP (JSON with Padding) represents JSON data wrapped in a function call. JSONP is an effective cross-domain communication technique frequently used to bypass the same-origin policy limitations.

Keyboard Navigation

You can use the arrow keys on the keyboard to move around the ComboBox items. Press the down arrow to move down the selection. Press the up arrow to move up the selection. Press the Page Up/Down keys to navigate up or down with one page. When you press the Home and End keys, you can easily navigate to the first and last list item.


jqxComboBox has built-in Search functionality which enables users to quickly find and select from a pre-populated list of values as they type.

Auto Complete

The ComboBox auto complete feature enables the end-user to quickly select an item from the dropdown by typing in the edit box. When you type text in the combobox editor, it looks for items containing the characters typed, then the combobox displays only the matching items in the dropdown.

PC, Touch & Mobile Devices Support

jqxComboBox supports all major desktop and mobile web browsers - Internet Explorer 7.0+, Firefox 2.0+, Safari 3.0+, Opera 9.0+, Google Chrome, IE Mobile, Android, Opera Mobile, Mobile Safari(IPhone, IPad). jqxComboBox automatically detects the browser's type and adjusts its internal behavior for optimal rendering and best user experience. You can easily use this widget even on touch devices. When the ComboBox detects that its running on a touch-enabled device, it turns on its built-in touch-scrolling and selection.
