Property Value

Type Default Description


true if users can type custom tags or false if users can only select predefined tags from the drop-down window.


The TagBox’s tag list is populated dynamically through data binding. To allow users select predefined tags from the drop-down window and type custom tags in the editor box, set the AllowCustomTags property to true.

<DxTagBox Data="@Cities"

@code {
    IEnumerable<string> Cities { get; set; } = new List<string>() {

    IEnumerable<string> Tags { get; set; } = new List<string>() {
        "New York"

To create a custom tag, users should type a value in the edit box and press Enter.
