The Kendo UI for jQuery MultiColumnComboBox enables you to render a series of two or more MultiColumnComboBoxes in which each component is filtered according to the selected options in the previous MultiColumnComboBox.

This demo shows how to enable the cascading functionality by defining the cascadeFrom property, pointing to the Id of the parent MultiColumnComboBox. Thus, the data in each MultiColumnComboBox is enabled and filtered based on the selection in the previous MultiColumnComboBox.

The child MultiColumnComboBox takes the following actions during initialization:

  • Enables the cascading functionality only if the cascadeFrom property is set.
  • Tries to find the parent object.
  • Listens for changes in the parent value.
  • Remains disabled if the parent has no value.

This MultiColumnComboBox example is part of a unique collection of hundreds of jQuery demos, with which you can see all Kendo UI for jQuery components and their features in action. View the source code of the demos from the library or directly adapt, and edit them and their theme appearance in Kendo UI for jQuery Dojo or ThemeBuilder.
