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

Peter,
Is it free?

Are you Dutch?

Who, me? I live in Ohio.


You should have to be from Holland or from Belgium to understand this. And
it was as far I can see connected to a message from Pieter (DraguVaso),

We Belgian's tell (and know! ;-) ) that Dutch people (like Cor!!!) are
stingy, they don't spend any money etc :-)

But, back to the topic: I still doen't have my combobox...

It sounds you search for this one -> www.compona.se or www.compona.com.

Look for the free editors components. These components include a multi
column combobox with the ability to style every column. But I think the
combobox is not able to store multi values, in fact it is unable to
store/hold any value. To workaround this problem use a table as data source
with the amount of values you want.

Unfortunately exist no longer support for the products at this time. The
company is dead or the author pays no longer attention to his work. The
companys forum is orphaned.

Hello

Maybe (and probably) this is a dumb question, but can you use the combobox
that comes with microsoft forms? This has muliple columns etc. etc. etc. and
is free(?)

Look at this picture: http://it.bacal.de/index.html

Is this possible with build in components from .NET?

You should be able to build this. There was a sample on codeguru.com for
..Net 1.1 that was for a multicolumn combobox. At least I thought it was
on there...

I was mistaken, it was thecodeproject. com .. Do a search for multicolumn
combobox and you will find a ton of examples.
