Multi-Text List Controls
The Multi-Text List Controls extend both the Drop Down List and List Box Web Controls to allow a developer to bind the text of a list item to two data columns.  This feature has long been a desire of mine (as well as my development team at work) when we would come across items that need to display two columns in the text portion.

The best example to give, would be a Staff List of First and Last Names.  Prior to this control, you would have to join the two columns in a SQL Query, or do some heavy manipulation of the List Item collection while the control is being rendered.  With these new controls, you easily specify the DataTextField and DataTextFieldAdditional to the appropriate columns, and SHAZZAM! ... you have a nicely formatted Drop Down List or List Box with Multiple Column data.

I have also added some new methods that allow you to easily select list items in the DropDownList or ListBox.  The ListBox version contains overloaded methods that allow you to select multiple items.  These new features are really worth looking at, as they take 4 or more lines of code down to 1.

This control has no limitations on the browser, as there is no varying difference on how the control is rendered.  With that in mind, its a great new control that will benefit your code tremendously.

You can download the installation files by clicking here. Remember, if you have downloaded another component, you do not need to download this one. They are all apart of the same assembly. Also, you have the option of downloading the .NET 1.0, .NET 1.1, .NET 2.0, or .NET 3.5 assemblies, however while .NET 1.0 and .NET 1.1 are in synch with each other, the 2.0 and 3.5 assemblies have much more vast functionality contained within them.
