The ASPxTokenBox editor provides the ability to autocomplete tokens from a predefined list. When the token box is focused, the drop-down window displays a list of predefined items. End-users can select tokens from a drop-down, or type them manually. Additionally, end-users can provide custom tokens. Note that editor tokens must be unique.

To remove a token, an end-user can use either the Remove button or the BACKSPACE key.

ASPxTokenBox provides the following features.

  • Data-Bound and Unbound Mode Support

    Editor items can be generated dynamically by binding the editor to a data source, as well by populating the control's item collection manually.

  • Incremental Filtering

    You can enable your end-users to filter list items dynamically, based on the text typed into the editor's input area on the client side ("find-as-you-type" filtering).

  • Custom Tokens

    You can restrict the tokens available to an item collection, or allow an end-user to provide custom tokens.

  • Support for Embedding Tokens into ASPxGridView and ASPxTreeList Controls (See online demo)

    You can use the ASPxTokenBox for editing column values in the ASPxGridView and ASPxTreeList controls.

  • Full-Featured Client-Side API

    ASPxTokenBox provides a comprehensive client-side API. This API is implemented using JavaScript and is exposed via the ASPxClientTokenBox object. The ASPxClientTokenBox object serves as the client-side equivalent of the ASPxTokenBox control.
