  • About this demo
  • C#
  • VB

RadMultiColumnComboBox supports virtualization of the data and DOM elements. This feature is useful for displaying large data sets and offers performance optimization by reusing elements in the browser and only fetching paged data from the server.

To enable Virtualization, you will need the following configuration:

  • VirtualSettings.ItemHeight and Height must be set
  • EnableServerFiltering="true"
  • AllowPaging="true"
  • EnableServerPaging="true"
  • PageSize="((Height / ItemHeight) * 4))"
  • DefaultVB.aspx
  • scripts.js
