Hello!!!

I'm using the telerik library, 2008 version. I want to have a unique form that is called from two different options in the menu and depending on the option you select in should show a label and a combobox or a label and a textbox. The label is easy to change, but how do i do to change between the combobox and the textbox? I tried put it over and set the visible attribute to false but it's not working because i have everything inside a table layout and it only lets me put one control in every cell.

Do you have any ideas? Thanks!!

Hello Ana,

Thank you for contacting us. You can create a base form and then derive that form twice.

Hi,

A suggestion would be to use a panel to contain the controls . You could place the label and combo in one panel  and the other label and textbox in another panel. Hiding one panel would shift the other up. This way you dont need to individually show and hide the controls.

Please feel free to correct me.

Thanks
