jQWidgets is a JavaScript framework for making web-based applications for PC and mobile devices. It is a very powerful, optimized, platform-independent, and widely supported framework. The jqxListBox is used to illustrate a jQuery ListBox widget which comprises a list of electable elements.

Where name is confined in the collection stated by the ‘source’ property. It is of type String and its default value is “”.

$("#jqxListBox").jqxListBox({displayMember: 'firstName'});
