I am trying to create a drop down list to be used in a C# Web application.  Similiar to choosing a state from a drop down, but instead of text, a small image would appear?  Does anyone know how to do this?

Thanks,

Jared

This isnt really possible in a web app afaik.
You could create your own user control to work like a dropdown with images.

A DropDownList control can only be used for text.  You would need to create a special user control to do this.  I would base it on an image drop down menu (like the one here: http://www.cssplay.co.uk/menus/image_dropdown.html).  Info on user controls: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/y6wb1a0e.aspx
