Telerik Windows Forms DropDownList and ListControl come with a flexible data binding mechanism including support for binding to any object that implements IList, IListSource or IBindingList. This includes generic lists, arrays, and BindingSource. By using virtualization, the controls can be bound to thousands of items in milliseconds, re-enforcing Telerik's commitment to excellent performance without sacrificing features.
When in editing mode the DropDownList selects or prefills the matching entry from the list as soon as the user starts typing. The different autocomplete modes are Suggest, Append, SuggestAppend, and Off. If you are using multi-line item text, the DropDownList uses the title label only, making programming and operation easier.
The controls are shipped with a rich set of pixel-perfect themes that allow you to easily build slick interfaces with the look-and-feel of Windows 8, Office 2010, Office 2013, Metro, etc. The themes can be easily switched using a single property. You can tweak existing themes or build a new theme from scratch to fit your exact visual demands by using the Visual Style Builder productivity tool. A well-thought light element tree allows for easy and intuitive styling.
The DropDownList and ListControl are also capable of displaying images, text, multiline text, and rich text by using standard HTML tags, such as <i>, <b>, and <u>.
Telerik DropDownList and ListControl provide rich design-time support making customizations and configurations very easy. Some of the key capabilities are:
