DomainUpDown Control (Windows Forms)

Visual Studio .NET 2003

The Windows Forms DomainUpDown control looks like a combination of a text box and a pair of arrows for moving up or down through a list. The control displays and sets a text string from a list of choices. The user can select the string by clicking up and down buttons to move through a list, by pressing the UP and DOWN ARROW keys, or by typing a string that matches an item in the list. One possible use for this control is for selecting items from an alphabetically sorted list of names. (To sort the list, set the Sorted property to true.) The function of this control is very similar to the list box or combo box, but it takes up very little space.
