  • Comprehensive Multi-Column ComboBox

    The multi-column combobox control in Telerik UI for WinForms by Progress is a versatile combination of the RadTextBox editing field, combined with the power of RadDropDownList, which hosts a RadGridView in its drop-down list. The controls are tightly coupled to work seamlessly together and allow for looking up and selecting data from a multi-column list. The TextBox can be set to accept free-form data input, thus triggering the filtering mode, or can be read-only, forcing the user to select from the entries in the drop-down list.

  • Rotating Items on Double-Click

    Double-click on the text box in a Telerik MultiColumnComboBox and it will pull up the next item from the list. This timesaving feature allows your users to quickly advance through a list without the need to see all items.
  • Animations

    With the introduction of WPF, animations and interactivity are an integrated part of today's UI. RadControls bring you this interactivity with, but with the proven WinForms technology.

    Telerik Windows Forms MultiColumnComboBox supports a variety of expand animation styles for a great user experience. You can select among predefined drop down animations and further customize them to fit your scenario.
  • Powerful Databinding

    To make your life easier, we do not set any limits on what data sources you should use. The Telerik multi column combobox uses the RadGridView to display data, which you can bind to whatever data source your application is using. In addition to using the standard WinForms data binding model, you can also bind the control to business objects, nullable objects, XML, web services, and properties of sub-objects, while taking full advantage of all data operations, like sorting and filtering. In addition, you can choose the optimal data mode to manage your data most effectively:
    • Bound mode for codeless and fully automatic data management; 
    • Unbound and mixed modes for displaying static, read-only data, or when you want to have custom interaction  with the data source;
    • Virtual mode to best performance when working with large amounts of data.
  • RadMultiColumnComboBox features several useful functionalities to control the size of its popup. Besides setting the popup size manually, plenty of built-in options enable you to size the drop-down according to the grid’s content.
