||Listing Reviewed: obout Advanced Combobox
Strengths: Provide additional features that Windows common controls should have. Small footprint. Low cost
Weaknesses: Haven't found any weaknesses yet!
Details: I'm a PhD student studying in applied IT. As part of the deliverables from my project, I am working on the user interface to a telemetry system. I needed a combobox that could be used to display pictures and images, without the need to learn jquery, override combobox styles, or write extension controls based on the combo, list box, text box, image control and others. After some searching I came across the Obout combobox, part of their ASP.NET control suite. This control integrated perfectly, provided numerous code examples of utilisation, allows data binding and all the other necessary functions. In short, it fills in all of the gaps in the Windows combobox functionality - everything that you ever wanted in a combobox, you can find here.
I'm certainly going to be taking this back to my company, and recommending they license it for future developments. If you need access to Windows controls that go beyond the basics, and add functions that you always think of and then find don't exist in the common control library, give the Obout controls a try. I think they will exceed your expectations.
