Drop down Table/Grid? i.e. ComboBox but multiple columns

Given that a ComboBox is like a table/grid with 1 visible column, is there a standard way of getting a ComboBox/button to have multiple columns?

Sometimes 1 visible column simply isn’t enough. Of course the selected caption would have to be one of those columns or some computed value.

Thanks.

Hi,

I have some sometimes just used a composition of TextField and Table for such a use case. Pretty simple to do and actually scales much better than plain ComboBox as well. Making the Table to appear as a “flowting” over other components is tricky though (can be achieved with AbsoluteLayout), but you don’t always need that. Putting the filtering textfield and the table in a Window is another “workaround”.
