Wouldn’t it be nice if we can embed an image/button inside the textbox just like what datetimepicker has that can be set to visible if needed and has a click event.. This feature will be nice for lookup. Instead of putting a button to the right side of the textbox (the usual way of doing lookup) and pops up a window when clicked, this makes the form/window more cleaner.
Same as above. Especially in accounting application, sometimes, description of a transaction is too long to fit into a dgv column and hard to see the full view of the description. And also for lookup. Combobox will be fine if the datasource has only few values but if it is in thousands, form is still the best to do the lookup.
Just my two cents.
It’s in the works. The container is there already. See the Tools property of a form or a panel. You can add tool buttons to the caption.
The same container will be added to all editable controls. Same functionality and event.
The Tools property is fully implemented and wired to the server events. You can use it on windows/forms, panels and splitpanels (when the ShowHeader property is true).
It just has to be integrated with the edit controls.
I was able to use the Tools property in a panel header now. I just didn’t assign any image/imagesource the first time I used it before.
It’s a very nice feature and can’t wait to use this in edit controls.
