Icon graphics in gridview drop-down field?

P: n/a
I'd like to have a field in a gridview (or standalone on a webpage) that not
only drops down each salespersons name but also precedes their name with a
blue, red, green or orange dot icon depicting what group they belong to.

Can drop-downs have such graphics as opposed to just text?

TIA

Not natively, but several options are available:

Hi Mark,

As for dropdownlist control, it is the wrapper of html <selectelement. It
support limited formatting feature in each select item/option. As far as I
know, it support some simple backcolor or forecolor style for each item.
But cannot support embeded image in each item. I think you may search for
some custom dropdownlist for some ideas:

Thanks.

So far I haven't pursued that since it wasn't native.
