DropDownList with CheckBoxes using jQuery Bootstrap Multi Select Plugin

Implementation: We need to download the bootstrap from here

Or we can also use the CDN of bootstrap and Multiselect Jquery and CSS as I have used in example below.

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">

    <script type="text/javascript">
        $(document).ready(function () {
                includeSelectAllOption: true,
                enableCaseInsensitiveFiltering: true,
                enableFiltering: true,
                maxHeight: 200

        function GetSelectedCountries() {
            var selectedCountries = "";
            $("#ddlCountry option:selected").each(function () {
                selectedCountries += "Country: " + $(this).text() + ", CountryId: " + $(this).val() + "\n";
            if (selectedCountries) {
            else {
                alert("Please select at least one country");
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <div style="margin-left: 500px;">
            <select id="ddlCountry" multiple="multiple">
