Well, I thought I was home free with my little project.  However, I need to add a way to select an item from a list with the descritpion of it to the right. All I can think to call it is a multi-column ComboBox.  Since that is not possible, which control is best to mimic that behavior? ListBox, ListView, DataGridview? I need it to load it from SQL database with no column headings and first record showing with down arrow to right to expand to drop down rest of selections.

Can you please offer suggestion on how to achieve this?
