THE Multi Column ComboBox

Hi,

The Multi column comboBox is a well spoken control, that a lot of people
desire, and a lot of people buildtheir own. I tested a lot of them, but none
really was what i wanted to have.
But does anybody knows where I can find the best Multi column combobox? One
that supports a lot of columns, possiblities to get the values in each
column for the selected item, adding a DataSource etc...
It should be free, and if possible with the source code (in VB.NET).

Thanks a lot in advance,

Pieter

It won't be a nice presentation with columns, but just every time a line
with a lot af values next to each other, and absolutely not well-presented.

Actually: it's really the solution with the columns I need. and I jsut know
that there are a lot of them on the internet, but I jsut want to have the
opinion of the people who used them :)

Sounds like what you want is a ComboBox where the dropdown displays a
DataGrid or a ListView in detail mode, no?

I don't know of any free ones that do this, though I haven't looked
for one. SyncFusion has a package with that in it, but that is
*definitely* not free!

Take a look at http://www.devexpress.com/Products/NET/WFSubscription/

I'm slowly working my way through it. The set of controls that ships with
VS-2003 is pretty lame.

Think of a grid with a combo box - what a concept. And yes, it does do
multi-column data lookup combo boxes.

Pieter,

That was I expecting. So what you need is a single column datatbox with a
tab seperator in the text part of it. The nicest is when the seperator is
visible as a |.

Right?

combobox of course.

Yes but is still ugly :)
and if you do it like this you have to calculate the ith of the text to have
everything nice set :)

Not like this :-)

opinion gone. Now you give an reply on the answer from Marina. (I wrote this
