  • ComboBox with remote and groups #60639


    I need the combobox to work with remote search and the results to be grouped.
    I’m returning the results correctly from JSON using label and group elements.

    Using a single source as in the Categories example works fine, but it does not in the remote search.
    Is there an option or custom code to enable it?

    Hello nybblegroup,

    This feature will be available in a future version of jQWidgets. Until then, you may try the following approach:

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html lang="en">
        <link rel="stylesheet" href="../../jqwidgets/styles/jqx.base.css" type="text/css" />
        <script type="text/javascript" src="../../scripts/jquery-1.11.1.min.js"></script>
        <script type="text/javascript" src="../../scripts/demos.js"></script>
        <script type="text/javascript" src="../../jqwidgets/jqxcore.js"></script>
        <script type="text/javascript" src="../../jqwidgets/jqxdata.js"></script>

        <script type="text/javascript" src="../../jqwidgets/jqxlistbox.js"></script>
        <script type="text/javascript" src="../../jqwidgets/jqxcombobox.js"></script>
        <div id='content'>
            <script type="text/javascript">
                $(document).ready(function () {
                    var sampleJSON = [{ label: "Parrot", group: "Animals" }, { label: "Cat", group: "Animals" }, { label: "Palm", group: "Plants" }, { label: "Peppermint", group: "Plants"}];
                    // prepare the data
                    var source =
                        datatype: "json",
                        datafields: [
                            { name: 'label' },
                            { name: 'group' }
                        localdata: sampleJSON,
                        async: false
                    var dataAdapter = new $.jqx.dataAdapter(source, { autoBind: true, beforeLoadComplete: function (records) {
                        $("#jqxWidget").jqxComboBox({ source: records, width: '300', height: '25', selectedIndex: 0 });
            <div id='jqxWidget'>

    Best Regards,
