jQWidgets jqxComboBox getSelectedItems() Method

  • Last Updated : 22 Aug, 2021

jQWidgets is a JavaScript framework for making web-based applications for PC and mobile devices. It is a very powerful and optimized framework, platform-independent, and widely supported. The jqxComboBox is used to represent a jQuery combobox widget that contains an input field with autocomplete functionality and a list of selectable items displayed in a drop-down.

The getSelectedItems() method is used to return the selected items when “multiselect” is turned on. The returned value is an Array with Objects. It does not accept any parameter and returns an array of elements.

The returned value is an object with the following fields:

  • label
  • value
  • disabled
  • checked
  • hasThreeStates
  • html
  • index
  • group

Syntax:

var items = $('selector').jqxComboBox('getSelectedItems');
