    Is it possible to have HTML-formatted text (specifically, font awesome icons) in both single and multiple <select>s? I tried the obvious route, which didn’t work:

    $(“#multiple-select”).jqxComboBox({
    placeHolder: ‘<i class=”fa fa-user”></i>User’
    });

    HTML in placeholder #106484

    Hello hobbes,

    You could not add HTML to placeholder property, because it would be displayed as plain string.
    If you want to customize the list items you have to use renderer property as the following example.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thank you for the reply! I took a look at the fiddle you sent, and it looks like HTML in the dropdown items is supported, but when I try to use renderSelectedItem() to include HTML, the tags get rendered as text:

    Hello hobbes,

    As stated in the jqxComboBox API Documentation, by using the renderSelectedItem function, you can customize the displayed text in the ComboBox’s input field. Unfortunately, you cannot display anything other than text information there.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Best Regards,
