    Sometimes you need to show the user how data is structured and allow the user to select information in the structure.
    The problem is to keep the gui clean and not to clutter it.
    Often the form space you got to work with is very limited.

    In theese situations I often use a dropdown control as a "dummy control" and a treeview to display the data.
    When the user pressed the drop down control, I display the tree view.

    What I think should be nice are a drop down control that
    a) Contains a treeview (like the MultiDropDown implementation but not a gridview)
    b) A "generic" drop down that I can use to add any control to using "Controls.Insert"

    Alt. b could also be implemented in a way that it lets me "select" (type the name ei) any already existing control on the form, (like a property "EditorControl  [...]")
    The control I selected will then (in runtime) be moved to inside the dropdown window.

    Hello Per,

    Thank you for the suggestion. We currently have plans to provide a popup control like the one you described but with the ability to host any control. I am afraid I can not give you a release date because it is still in a concept stage.

    Please write again if you have other suggestions or questions.
