Editable Dropdown list control in ASP.NET 2.0

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by =?Utf-8?B?QW1pdC5ORVQ=?=, Oct 17, 2006.

  1. Hi,

    The canned ASP.NET DropDownList control does not allow the user to enter
    arbitrary text and the user must select one of the available options.

    What is the easiest way to get the ASP.NET DropDownList control to behave
    like the Windows Forms ComboBox control?

    Thanks,
    Amit

  3. You can shop for a 3rd party control. One of them is
