Add multiple values within single cell


Ii my application i have used GCC and there is a column (Dropdown values) that user can enter multiple key value pairs.
Eg -: 
1 Display item1
2 Display Item2
3 Display Item3

as above, users should be able to add multiple records (Id, display items) through GCC,  and need to load saved data as well. 
How i can archive this. Some kind of control or small popup is better.

Thanks & Regards,
Sumudu Ekanyake

Hi Sumudu, 
Thank you for using Syncfusion product, 
The reported scenario with “Adding multiple values from the DropDown” can be achieved by using the GridListControl as a CellType. Please refer the below code snippet and attached sample, 

Code Snippet: 
GridTableCellStyleInfo styleInfo = this.gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.Columns["CategoryName"].Appearance.AnyRecordFieldCell; 
styleInfo.DataSource = GetTable(); 
styleInfo.CellType = "GridListControl";   
Sample link: GridGroupingControl

Hi Mohanraj,

Thank you for your update.
Please refer bellow image.


If user select control type as combobox,then user should be able to enter value list and display list.

Thanks & Regards,

Sorry for the inconvenience caused, 
We have analyzed your query at our end. The reported scenario has achieved by using the TableControlCurrentCellCloseDropDown event to save and load the values in ValueList and DisplayList column. Please refer the below code also refer the sample and video from below link.

    GridTableCellStyleInfo style = e.TableControl.GetTableViewStyleInfo(e.TableControl.CurrentCell.RowIndex, e.TableControl.CurrentCell.ColIndex); 
    if (cr != null && cr.ListBoxPart.SelectedValue != null) 
        int rowIndex = this.gridGroupingControl1.TableControl.CurrentCell.RowIndex; 
        if (!String.IsNullOrEmpty(style.TableCellIdentity.DisplayElement.GetRecord().GetValue("ValueList").ToString())) 
            value += "," + cr.ListBoxPart.SelectedValue.ToString();
