My users frequently need to enter some codes into form, eg. postal code. I want to provide a lookup functionality so that users can search and choose a code instead of typing it.

My simplest tables have atleast 3 columns. An ID (int) which is not seen by user, code (string) and code name (string).

I want to have a combobox with this properties:
- to have a grid in dropdown with 2 columns: code and code name.
- to be able to sort on both columns.
- to be able to filter rows by entering a part of code or code name.
- autocomplete feature on code column in combobox.
- upon selecting a value, code should be transferred into Text property and ID into SelectedValue property.

What combination of controls would you recommend?

Thank you in advance.

Hi Srdjan,

Thanks for using Syncfusion products.

You can use MultiColumnComboBoxAdv Control for your requirements. I have also attached the sample application. Please refer the attachments.

Please let me know if this helps.

It doesn't meet my expectations.

I cannot sort columns by clicking on column header and I cannot filter columns using filterbar or something similar.

Can Multicolumnbox provide me with this two features?

Currently these features are not available in MultiColumnComboBox. However, I will log this as a feature request so that these features would be available in future versions.

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion products.

Best Regards,
