I have been trying to work with the WinComboBox in a VB.NET project. I am using Xceed.Editors (v 1.0.5412.0). I am binding data to the ComboBox from a SQL DataSet. All I want it to do is behave like a normal ComboBox in Drop Down mode. I have two fields, the Name and their UserID.
With a normal Combo box you can display the Name, and then have the Selected Value be the UserID, however no matter what I’ve tried the Drop Down part of the Combo Box includes both the Name and the UserID. The main box (not sure what it is called) after an item is clicked I have made display only the Name and everything works, but it just looks horrible to have their name and UserID shown.
I have tried deleting the UserID column from the Columns collection, and that affects what is Displayed at the top, but not in the drop down. The Items column I also deleted the UserID column from.
