Category: ComboBox
Type: Feature Request
Support for Multiple Columns (MultiColumnComboBox)

We are desperately searching for a MultiColumnComboBox and I am very surprised that it is not part of the Kendo Angular components.
The MultiComlumnComboBox is one of the most important components and a lot of people deal with it everytime. We have lots of models for which a single text is not enough and doesn't really tell the user anything about the dataset


Let's say we have a company table in the db like the following:

| Id |  Name1  |  Name2  |  Name3   |
|  1 | Porsche | USA     | New York |
|  2 | Porsche | USA     | Boston   |
|  3 | BMW     | Germany | Munich   |

If I just display the Name1 in the ComboBox, no one will know the difference between 1 and 2. Sure, I could work around by just putting them into a textfield of a DTO, separated by a dash but that will look really nasty as they won't be aligned properly.

We would highly appreciate if this component gets added as it is already in jQuery, ASP .Net Core, ASP .Net MVC, WPF and WinForms.

Hi Karim,

Thank you for the logged feature request.

As we already have an open request asking for such Kendo UI for Angular component I will proceed with closing this one in favor of the older request:

That will help to keep the votes for the feature at one place.
