Wouldn't it be nice if one could create a combobox control that fetches it's values from a database, say through a DataSource?

Or is there any other way to achieve that?

I developed a databound drop down list for an internal project. If you are interested in the source let me know.

We have also developed the same type of control. Would be nice to hear if you had any problems.

We made a WCF Service that we deployed on the TFS APp Tier and had a database in the TFS Data Tier.

One problem we have noticed is that the value list is no longer avaliable in Excel, so editing in Excel is somewhat more of a problem.
