I was curious if it was possible to order the columns that appear in the Grid popup of a MultiColumnComboBox.

In our case, the Grid is bound to a DataTable - so the columns appear in the order defined by the DataTable. Is there any way to show them in a specific order?

We want to allow our users to specify what order (and which columns) to show. We have already gotten the non-desired columns to be hidden, but I can''t seem to get them to re-order properly.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Jonathan,

Currently I could not make this functionality work for a MultiColumnComboBox due to the limitations of the internal grid.I have done a sample that does column interchange for DataBoundGrid and this Grid is attached as the PopUpControl for a ComboDropDown control.

Please have a look at this and let us know your feedback about this.However one drawback I would like to point out is that,this will not do the AutoCompletion as you have in MultiColumnComboBox.


Thanks for choosing Syncfusion products.
