How to make an ImageCombobox?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: GridControl |
Published Date: April 30, 2011 |
Last Revised Date: February 8, 2017

To have an Image ComboBox, descriptions of the images are added into an arraylist and the images in the imagelist are bound with the Dropdown, that is the GridListControl. The GridListControl’s look and feel are created in such a manner that it looks like a list box containing the images. The following code examples explain how to create it.

  1. Setting the GridListControl properties to look and feel similar to a ComboBox Dropdown.





  1. Combining the GridControl, GridListControl, ArrayList, and ImageList.





  1. The CurrentCellCloseDrop event is used to assign the selected image to the cell of the GridControl.
