ASP.NET Custom Web Controls
Binding to Multiple Fields
Have you experienced frustration with standard DropDownList when trying to bind them to multiple fields(object properties or database fields)? We did. That was one of the reasons we created this control. No more workarounds with UNIONs. No more cumbersome concatenations. Showing multiple fields with this control is easy.
DataList has one. DataGrid and GridView have one. Somehow list controls were spared ItemDataBound event. It comes in handy for total control over what is being displayed, especially when binding to business objects. Our DropDownListEx lets you have that control.
You can colorize items in variety of ways. For ultimate control over this process 'ItemColoring' is exposed. Coloring 'survives' post backs to save database trips.
Proper Handling of Item Attributes
This happens to be a problem with standard DropDownList controls that affects many developers. Standard DropDownList controls can't save the attributes (like 'style') of its Items in ViewState. Our control makes sure the problem is non-existent.
Extends Standard DropDownList
Small change from '<asp:DropDownList ..>' to '<'cc:DropDownListEx ..>' makes upgrade from the standard DropDownList control a snap. There is no learning curve to use our control for those who already are comfortable working with the standard asp.net offering.
Works with Microsoft Ajax.
