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.

Similarly to the feedback listed in https://feedback.telerik.com/kendo-jquery-ui/1560733-multiselect-keyboard-events-bubble-although-already-handled#:~:text=The%20approach%20described%20in%20order%20to%20prevent%2Foverwrite%20the,well%3A%20kendo.ui.MultiSelect.fn._keydown%20%3D%20function%28e%29%20%7B%20e.preventDefault%20%28%29%20%7D%3B

I am exploring using a multiselect box within a window.  If I choose to not allow the multiselect to autoClose, hitting the escape key will close the multiselect, but the event will continue to bubble up and will close the window.  Ideally, the multiselect should close its panel, but the window it is embedded on should not.

One solution to this problem is to add a handler for the close event on the window, however there is currently no way to determine if the close event is being triggered by clicking the close button on the window, or from an escape character (e.userTriggered does not go far enough to differentiate).  I would like the user to be able to click the close button manually to close the dialog, but not necessarily use the keyboard Escape key.  See:  https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/javascript/ui/window/events/close

The following solution as mentioned in the feedback link above, can be used to stop the propagation of the Escape key globally, but this then breaks all other keyboard actions (which is bad from a usability standpoint).  Is there any way to add this functionality?  From looking at the source (which we have as part of our subscription), simply adding e.stopPropagation() when responding to the ESC key in the _keydown function of kendo.multiselect.js would be enough to fix this issue.

kendo.ui.MultiSelect.fn._keydown = function (e) {
   if (e.which === 27) {
      e.stopPropagation();
   }
}

Thanks.

Hi Team,

I would like to request a built-in functionality to have the Kendo UI MultiSelect to select and deselect all items.  Perhaps a checkbox or specific button within would be great.

Thank you!

Editor components like the pickers, textboxes, etc. use an internal <input> element while submitting to get their value from. This value shows up in form.serialize() even when no value selected/provided.

Can you make the filter menu (k-multicheck-wrap) available as an editor widget? The search with a list of items with checkboxes is much more aesthetically pleasing than the Multiselect widget.

In Angular we want to lazy initiate the options of a multiselect. After angular loads the multiselect directive, the control does not react on changing the k-options variable. If I recall, it should be solved when the control supports the setOptions method, like Kendo UI Grid.

The MultiSelect should preserve the order of selected items on a form post.

Currently, the relation between the MultiSelect input and its TagList element (the one that holds the selected items) is established with an aria-describedby attribute. That results in the screen readers to report the selection (all selected items) as one line of text which doesn't adequately describe the control or and its context. The text of each selected item is announced but it is not clear how many items are selected. Also, there is no articulation between each item text that is announced.

Consider and implement better relation/structure, so that the context of the widget (the selected items and their number) is announced clearly.

There is no way to sort the selected items inside the MultiSelect

It would be nice to have such functionality implemented or provide an implementation that can achieve the described functionality.
