Wondering if there is an almost out of the box component offering a combobox with checkbox to select multiple values, and which would display selected value in a label separated by comma ?

I'm using MVC

Bandbox with an inner listbox is a good candidate, but I would want the input part to not allow the user to type anything and instead display there the selected value. While opening the bandbox when the user click on it.

Would that be possible ?

In case it helps someone else, went with a readonly bandbox containing a listbox to do what I wanted.

On the zul side :

<bandbox id="myBandBox" width="135px" readonly="true">
        <listbox id="myListBox" width="135px" height="60px" multiple="true" 
            checkmark="true" />

On the controler (MVC) side :

Retrieve the zul components

private Bandbox myBandBox;
private Listbox myListBox;

During initialization : 1 - add an event listener to open the bandbox even in readonly mode

myBandBox.addEventListener(Events.ON_CLICK, new EventListener<Event>() {
    public void onEvent(Event arg0) throws Exception {

2 - fill the listbox with its listItems

3 - Add an event listener when checking the listITem

changeStatusListbox.addEventListener(Events.ON_SELECT, new EventListener<SelectEvent<Listitem, String>>() {
    public void onEvent(SelectEvent<Listitem, String> event) throws Exception {
        // Generates the label you want to display
        StringBuilder labelToDisplaySB = new StringBuilde();
        // Business logic checking that if all is selected, you will only display "ALL" else you will display the listItem labels separated with a comma or whatever ...

        // Then set it as Value for the bandbox

maybe a chosenbox could help.

    i.readOnly > input {
    display: none;
<chosenbox sclass="readOnly">

Greetz chill.
