A data-bound multi-column combobox

I wrote a multi-column combobox class with support for data-binding at work and I have published an article on it here :-

It’s fairly easy to use and all you need to do is to set the DataSource property. The control will auto-populate the columns from the columns (if any) in the DataSource.

  3. Hi,

    I would really like to use this control in a new project I am working on. I am using visual studio 2008 and am binding a regular combobox to a bindsource. What I want is the value member to be the id and the display member to be a combination of two columns. Can I use this control in VS2008? Can I import it so I can use it from the toolbox? Many thanks
