Allow adding additional buttons to ComboBox and DropDownList
There are a couple of things that are very common that I would like to add buttons for.  The first is for clearing the value and the second is a + for adding new items to the list.

The + button is an important one from a usability standpoint.  Quite often the combo/dropdown is populated from a list that is managed on a separate page.  It is too cumbersome to have to use stop entering and go to the admin page to add the new item and then come back to add whatever they were working on previously.

I know I could simply add a button beside the widget but this just doesn't look as nice as it being built in.

This says completed, but I don't really see anything in the new Demo. There's some form of clearing X that appears in the ComboBox example, but I'm not clear where that's coming from or what's fuelling it. How do I add an additional button to a DropdownList (ie, select from these items, then click go to go to the selected one).

We addressed both scenarios - clearing and adding new items. Check the [new] demos here -

Also for deleting please

maybe it's an idea to just make an option to add buttons with an corresponding event handler and an extra option in the footer for some extra stuff like adding

Or maybe add a full grid with all functionality and bind ID and Value to 2 columns.

Dear All,

I am fully agree to have custom buttons (with image/text or both)  in DropDownList and ComboBox which can be used

1. For adding new items
2. To view details of selected item

Custom button should be fully configurable like show/hide  enable /disable
Better to have a toolbar at bottom of drop down area.
