Add built-in Saving

Hi Team,

I would like to request being able to add new items into the MultiSelect and saving them per user.  

It has become clear that while this control allows a user to add custom entries not currently in the pre-defined list, it appears they can't later be loaded, like when a user saves choices, including custom entries.

I've never seen a scenario where a user enters input into a control and later doesn't need to see what they enter (saved to a Db).

Therefore, the MultiSelect demo which allows you to add custom entries, but can't later display them represents an unrealistic scenario and I recommend at least adding a caveat to the page informing developers planning to use that feature of this limitation.

I like the MultiSelect and use it in many places, but since the custom add feature won't support common usage (later display what they type), I recommend this feature not be displayed as a demo until it's ready.

For example, it should accept as a property a string, delimited by commas, custom entries.

It would then iterate through custom entries and where it doesn't match, add them for you.

Thank you.
