To get start quickly with ListBox Component using Blazor, you can check on this video:

You can refer Getting Started with Syncfusion Blazor for Server-side in Visual Studio page for the introduction and configuring the common specifications.

Importing Syncfusion Blazor component in the application

  1. Install the Syncfusion.Blazor NuGet package to the application by using the NuGet Package Manager.

  2. You can add the client-side style resources through CDN or from NuGet package in the <head> element of the ~/Pages/_Host.cshtml page.

Please ensure to check the Include prerelease option.

    <link href="_content/Syncfusion.Blazor/styles/bootstrap4.css" rel="stylesheet" />
    @*<link href="" rel="stylesheet" />*@

For Internet Explorer 11 kindly refer the polyfills. Refer the documentation for more information.

    <link href="_content/Syncfusion.Blazor/styles/bootstrap4.css" rel="stylesheet" />
    <script src=""></script>

Adding component package to the application

Open /_Imports.razor file and import the Syncfusion.Blazor.DropDowns package.

@using Syncfusion.Blazor.DropDowns

Add SyncfusionBlazor service in Startup.cs

Open the Startup.cs file and add services required by Syncfusion components. Add services.AddSyncfusionBlazor() method in the ConfigureServices function as follows.

namespace BlazorApplication
    public class Startup
        public void ConfigureServices(IServiceCollection services)

To enable custom client side resource loading from CRG or CDN. You need to disable resource loading by AddSyncfusionBlazor(true) and load the scripts in the HEAD element of the ~/Pages/_Host.cshtml page.

    <environment include="Development">
        <script src="">

Adding ListBox component to the application

To initialize the ListBox component add the below code to your Index.razor view page which is present under ~/Pages folder. For example, the ListBox component is added in the ~/Pages/Index.razor page.

@using Syncfusion.Blazor

<SfListBox TValue="string[]"></SfListBox>

Binding data source

After initializing, populate the ListBox with data using the DataSource property. Here, an array of object values is passed to the ListBox component.

The following example illustrates the output in your browser.

@using Syncfusion.Blazor.DropDowns

<SfListBox TValue="string[]" DataSource="@Vehicles" TItem="VehicleData">
    <ListBoxFieldSettings Text="Text" Value="Id" />
@code {
    public List<VehicleData> Vehicles = new List<VehicleData> {
        new VehicleData { Text = "Hennessey Venom", Id = "Vehicle-01" },
        new VehicleData { Text = "Bugatti Chiron", Id = "Vehicle-02" },
        new VehicleData { Text = "Bugatti Veyron Super Sport", Id = "Vehicle-03" },
        new VehicleData { Text = "SSC Ultimate Aero", Id = "Vehicle-04" },
        new VehicleData { Text = "Koenigsegg CCR", Id = "Vehicle-05" },
        new VehicleData { Text = "McLaren F1", Id = "Vehicle-06" },
        new VehicleData { Text = "Aston Martin One- 77", Id = "Vehicle-07" },
        new VehicleData { Text = "Jaguar XJ220", Id = "Vehicle-08" }

    public class VehicleData {
      public string Text  { get; set; }
      public string Id  { get; set; }

TValue is type of value in the datasource to resolve type inference. It is generic type and can be given as string[], int[].
