Getting Started

jqxDropDownList represents a jQuery widget that contains a list of selectable items displayed in a drop-down.
Every UI widget from jQWidgets toolkit needs its JavaScript files to be included in order to work properly.

The first step is to create html page and add links to the javascript files and css dependencies to your project. The jqxDropDownList widget requires the following files:

The next step is to create a div element within the body of the html document.

The last step is to initialize the widget by adding the following script to the html document:

To call a function(method), you need to pass the method name and parameters(if any) in the jqxDropDownList’s constructor.
$("#jqxdropdownlist").jqxDropDownList(‘selectIndex’, 1);
To get the result of a function(method) call, you need to pass the method name in the jqxDropDownList’s constructor.
To set a property(option), you need to pass the property name and value(s) in the jqxDropDownList's constructor.
$("#jqxdropdownlist").jqxDropDownList({ selectedIndex: 2 });
To get a property(option), you need to pass the property name to the jqxDropDownList's constructor.
var index = $("#jqxdropdownlist").jqxDropDownList('selectedIndex');
To bind to an event of a UI widget, you can use basic jQuery syntax. Let’s suppose that you want to get the selected item when the user clicks. The example code below demonstrates how to bind to the ‘select’ event of jqxDropDownList.
$('#jqxDropDownList').on('select', function (event) {
    var args = event.args;
    var item = $('#jqxDropDownList').jqxDropDownList('getItem', args.index);

Basic Sample

The result of the above code is:
