Adding custom object to combobox displays wrong.
I have a custom class that inherits from 'System.Collections.Collec
tionBase' but when I add it to a combobox it displays '(Collection)'
I know that you need to override the ToString() Method, and that works for my other objects but not this one, and I think its because of its inheritance.
Any ideas on why or how to fix it?
public class Picklist : CollectionBase
private string _name;
public override ToString()

Picklist is a Collection / List of items, right? ToString() of that will not help you. ToString() of items contained in the Picklist should do the trick...

I know there are many other work arounds;
I was just curious why collectionbase's tostring override does not work like others.
