Can You Display Multiple Lines in a Dropdown?

 

I recall seeing a video on how to show mutiple lines in a ComboBox (can't seem to find the video now). In any case, I must use a DropDown as a multi-selection would not make sense for the app I am creating.

 

That said, I would like to have all the information shown in the below picture contained within the dropdown during selection. That is, I would like the Item# to be on one line, the Description to be on second line and the Sheen to be shown on the third line (Sheen can be inlcuded with Description if necessary, but some combinations will be quite long).

 

I believe there is a way to concatenate all of this in one line, but the combination of all three on one line will definitley be too long in most cases.

Re: Can You Display Multiple Lines in a Dropdown?

ComboBox supports single select, just set "Allow multiple selection to Off".  For showing a second line you can set the layout to Double which can give you a Title and Subtitle template.  You may need to concatenate your second and third field to be able to show them both on the second line.

 

If you need more customization, use a gallery.  It requires more real estate, but you have full customization against the template.

 

Hope this helps.
