    Hello,

    This kind of control was missing, but after some analysis of request, using treeview in place of listbox was a better choice.

    Very less click are necessary with treeview and the Trevview api is rich, wich allow a lot of display adaptations.

    I have implemented mine using a CompositeControl and 2 radtreeview, but I would appreciate a use one from Telerik in regards to support and version changing in RadTreeview.

    One appreciated feauture is the ability to enter complementary data for the selected items in the left treeviw ... sorry listbox.

    Could I hope something in this area ?

    NB: Anybody sharing my advice could comment this threa as a limited mass action :)

    Hello Christian Surieux,

    Thank you for your honest feedback.

    Could you please elaborate on the following statement:
    One appreciated feature is the ability to enter complementary data for the selected items in the left treeview

    I couldn't understand what you mean. Perhaps this is a missing feature of RadListBox or something which it already has.

    Hi Albert,

    [This is not my keyboard which is bad but one on my fingers! so sorry for lot of mispelling and missings letters...]

    My meaning was : often you need to select items and add some more attributes for selected items.
    Sample: select fields, then enter a lenght or a default value for each.
    Doing this 2 actions in same control is very appreciated from endusers then clicking until the end of day.

    I don't think that listbox do it.
     Using treeview it is something easier to program.

    When the treeview version ? :)

    Hi Christian Surieux,

    I still fail to understand your suggestion. Do you mean that in the treeview you have other controls (defined in template) which the user can type into? What are those attributes you are referring to? Do you mean custom attributes?

    Yes I am simply adding now childs node when node is dropped with check boxes that users could check.
     My target idea is really to have some 'radxxinput' in next version, using template would be the solution.

    Could you do this with a list box ?

    Tree seems better adapted, isn't it ?

    Hello Christian Surieux,

    RadListBox supports both checkboxes and templates (there is no demo for templates in the beta though). However if you need hierarchy you should use RadTreeView. We don't plan to add hierarchy support to RadListBox.

    Considering that the functionality is there in the listbox, it should be easy to make the control create two treeviews instead of two listboxes, so that feature should be easy to implement, if the base control is able to do it. I haven't looked at the newly added controls too deep, so no analysis on the javascript (eg, compare to older controls to see if the overall javascript quality has improved, etc) or server side yet. However, based on the way this works, treeviews and listboxes (even combined) should be trivial to implement.

    So, if it is that easy, go for it Telerik, has my vote.

    Regards,

    Mike
