Default multi column listbox or combolist in VS 2005

Of all the fancy controls available in VS 2005 to work with, is there any multi column listbox or combolist ???

Hi There,

When working with ASP.NET you have to remember that all of yoour controls in the end get rendered purely as HTML. In HTML there are no equivalent elements to create a multi-column list or combo box.

I am assuming here that you want to take inout from these controls. However, if you are just wanting to display data in multiple columns then a GridView, DataList or Repeater control may be what you are looking for.

Does this help at all? Or was you question related to something else...?

Cheers,
Rich.

Rich,
         Thanks for the inputs. I landed up using the Gridview control to serve my purpose.
