Web control which is a combobox with an editable portion

Discussion in 'ASP .Net Web Controls' started by Edward Diener, Jun 22, 2006.

  1. Is there a web control which is the equivalent of a drop down combobox
    with an editable portion ? It seems backwards to have to use two
    separate web controls, a drop down list and a textbox, to implement this
    idea which has its own solution in a single control under Windows.

  2. No. There is not an HTML control equivalent to the Win Forms combo box. You
    have to design custom controls to do it. Look at this sample using atlas in
    asp.net 2.0:

  3. Unfortunately there is no ComboBox in HTML. But you can create one using
    JavaScript or use one that somebody else already wrote.
    Here are some suggested resources for creating an ASP.NET combo box:

    This is neat. Is this use of WinForm controls on WebForms documented
    anywhere in MSDN ?
