Hi how do you place multiple columns displayed in a combo box list including a tickbox as the first column? I'm trying to have a multiple selection option for that combobox wherein all the selected items will be inputs for the datagrid view. How is this possible? Is there such control like this in the datagridview? I'm using C#.NET 2005 Windows Forms. Thanks in advance.

By default C# Doesn't Support Template Fields to mold the combo as you ve mentioned if you require such functionality sure you must depend on some third party tool am using Telerik UI tool out of which ive done this combo box , similarly you can mold the Combo as per your wish :)

If you don't want to depend on 3rd party controls..
There is no in-built functionality provided, you need to create a custom combobox, below are some links that might help you to get an overview:
