Cascading Kendo MultiSelect Dropdowns
by Gregory Alexander ColdFusion and Kendo UI.
In this example, we will demonstrate how to create cascading menus' with Kendo MultiSelects. We have covered cascading menus with the dropdown lists, but there are fundamental differences.
In this example, I will try my best to replicate the UI of James Moberg's 'North America Search Demo' found at https://www.sunstarmedia.com/demo/countrystate/. James is a frequent contributor to the ColdFusion community and his elegant demo is used in production environments. Jame's demo uses a different library, Select2 UI, but it uses the same concepts that we want to show here.
Like the rest of the posts in this series, we will be using ColdFusion on the server side, however, it should be easily understood if you use a different server-side language, and you should be able to follow along.
