We often need to select multiple people and tags in the selection of people and tags. Multi selection dropdown is a control to meet this requirement. In this tutorial, we will learn how to make it.
Features to be Realized
1. Multiple options can be selected when clicking the options in the dropdown list.
2. When clicking the close button next to the option, hide the option and uncheck the list.
3. Click dropdown box to collapse / expand the list panel and change the arrow direction.
How to Realize these Features
1. Create two repeaters, one representing the dropdown list and one representing the selected options. When an option in the dropdown list is selected, a new row is added to represent the selected option.
2. When the close button of the option is clicked, the row of the option is deleted and the corresponding row in the dropdown list is unselected.
3. When the input box is clicked, toggle the show / hide drop-down list, and toggle the state of the arrow dynamic panel.
