Token Box

The ASPxTokenBox editor allows users to select autocomplete tokens from a predefined list. When the token box is focused, a drop-down window displays a list of predefined items. Users can select tokens from this drop-down menu, or type them manually. End users can also create custom tokens. Note that editor tokens must be unique.

To remove a token, a user can either click the Remove button or press the Backspace key.


ASPxTokenBox includes the following features.

  • Data-Bound and Unbound Mode Support

    You can bind an editor to a data source to generate editor items dynamically, or populate the control’s item collection manually.

  • Incremental Filtering

    You can enable 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 a user to create custom tokens.

  • Embed Tokens into ASPxGridView and ASPxTreeList Controls (See online demo)

    You can use the ASPxTokenBox to allow users to edit column values in the ASPxGridView and ASPxTreeList controls.

  • Full-Featured Client-Side API

    The ASPxClientTokenBox object is the client-side equivalent of the ASPxTokenBox control. This object exposes the control’s comprehensive client-side API.
