UPDATE: Although above code will properly display in combo box, you will not be able to use SelectedValue or SelectedText properties of ComboBox. To be able to use those, bind combo box as below:
Further to Adam Markowitz's answer, here is a general purpose way of (relatively) simply setting the ItemSource values of a combobox to be enums, while showing the 'Description' attribute to the user. (You'd think everyone would want to do this so that it would be a .NET one liner, but it just isn't, and this is the most elegant way I've found).
Secondly in your OnLoad event handler, you need to set the source of your combo box to be a list of ComboEnumItems based on every Enum in your Enum type. This can be achieved with Linq. Then just set the DisplayMemberPath:
Now the user will select from a list of your user friendly Descriptions, but what they select will be the enum value which you can use in code.To access the user's selection in code, comboBoxUserReadable.SelectedItem will be the ComboEnumItem and comboBoxUserReadable.SelectedValue will be the EMyEnum.
I had the same problem, what I did was add a new ComboBox with just the value in the same index then the first one, and then when I change the principal combo the index in the second one change at same time, then I take the value of the second combo and use it.

Hello.. The ROWS function is used in Helper Column 1. The formula used in cell E4 is =ROWS($B$4:B4) and then copied for all the remaining cells in the column. You can also download the example file and see the exact formula in it.
I was able to replicate the issue using your demo file. It seems to fail if you turn the unique list into a table and use the =Tablex[ColumnY] function. Pretty frustrating that Excel does that. I prefer to use the table functions as my arrays/lists rather than a range, since the unique list may change over time. Any ideas of a workaround Thanks!
hi i m sumeet , sir i want to know that can i edit the data selected from the drop down list on real time , for eg. i have selected sumeet as my name from the drop down list & i want to add singh as my surname after my name on real time basis
Yes . I have a database where there are 50 columns and each column has10000 rows , with new entries being added each day . I want 50 dynamicfilters on each column so that i dont have to scroll the page forapplying filters on each column . As i want to filter data withcombination of any number of columns , i was looking for multipledynamic filter . Basically i want to use normal filters to filter data , with the exception that i can place the combobox as per my convenience . Also if you can tell any technique wherein when I type the data indynamic filter it gives a google type search dropdown also , it will be mosthelpful . Thanks
Thanks for commenting and glad you liked it I am afraid I not aware of any way to do this without combo-box. The benefit for combo-box is that it makes the data entry dynamic, which instantly gives you results.
A column's type determines how data is stored and displayed in a list or library. When you create a column for a list or library, you choose a column type that indicates the type of data that you want to store in the column, such as numbers only, formatted text, or a number that is calculated automatically.
This article discusses default types of columns that you can create and when to use each type of column. Columns are added to one or more views of the list or library to help you display the data in a meaningful way. Depending on your organization, additional types of column may be available.
Columns help you create meaningful views of the items in a list or library. By using columns, you can sort, group, and filter items, and you can also calculate data about items automatically and display the results of those calculations. Columns also enable you to specify what information should be entered about an item when someone adds an item to a list or library. When an item is added, a form appears and provides fields and options for entering information. When you create a list or library, certain columns, such as Title or Modified By, are created automatically. You can create additional columns to suit your needs. The columns that you create determine which fields and options appear in that form, and the columns that can be added to views of the list or library.
Some file metadata, such as created date and modified date, is already available in hidden, auto-generated columns. To show such a column in your list, select Add column > Show/hide columns, then select the column you want.
A single line of text column can display up to 255 characters in a single line. If you're creating a column for a list or library and want to display formatted text or more than one line of text at a time, create a Multiple lines of text column. You can change an existing Single line of text column to a Multiple lines of text column without losing any data stored in the column already.
Display a default value Automatically display specific text when someone adds a new item, while also allowing people to enter different text if they need to do so. When you set the Default value, people can enter information faster by accepting the default unless they need to change it. For example, if the column stores the name of a company assigned to a project and your organization works with a specific company for most projects, you can enter the name of that company as the default value. As a result, the company name appears automatically when a new project is added to the list, and team members do not have to enter the name.
Used in a list or library to collect and display formatted text or lengthy text and numbers on more than one line, such as a description of an item. A Multiple lines of text column can store up to 63,999 characters, and you can specify the number of lines of text that you want to display when people enter information about an item. This type of column displays all the text when the column is viewed in a list or library.
Enable or disable text formatting (Only available in lists) Use enhanced rich text (Rich text with pictures, tables, and hyperlinks) sets whether people can apply formatting such as bold, italics, or colors to text. If disabled, the list will not support any formatting options; if enabled, the list will support basic formatting such as bold, italics, bulleted or numbered lists, colored text, and background colors, as well as hyperlinks, pictures, and tables.
Append changes (Only available in lists) If versioning has been enabled for the list, Append Changes to Existing Text specifies whether people can add new text about an item without replacing any existing text about that item. If you choose to not append changes, new text about an item replaces any existing text about that item in the column. If you choose to append changes, people can enter additional information about an item, while also viewing text that was previously entered and the date and time that the text was entered. When viewed in a list , not as a field in an item form, the column displays the hyperlink View Entries, instead of the text, and people can click the hyperlink to see all the information stored in the column for that item.
Display a default value Automatically display a specific number when someone adds a new item, while also allowing people to enter different numbers if they need to do so. A default value helps people enter information faster. For example, if the column stores the number of computers that each team member has and every team member has at least one computer, enter 1 as the default value. As a result, 1 appears automatically when a new item is added to the list, and team members do not have to enter the number.
Used to provide a searchable list of people and groups from which people can choose when they add or edit an item. For example, on a Tasks list, a Person or Group column named Assigned To can provide a list of people that a task can be assigned to. The contents of the list depends on how directory services and SharePoint groups have been configured for the site. To customize the contents of the list, you may need to contact your administrator.
Include or exclude groups of people Specify whether the list includes only individual people, or additionally includes e-mail distribution lists and SharePoint groups. For example, on a Tasks list, you might want to include only individual people to ensure that a specific person is responsible for each task. On a Projects list, you might want to include e-mail distribution lists and SharePoint groups to ensure that a team is associated with each project.
Display a default value Automatically display a specific date or date and time when someone adds a new item, while also allowing people to enter a different value if they need to do so. A default value helps people enter information faster. For example, if the column stores the date when an expense is incurred and most expenses are incurred on the first day of the fiscal year, you can specify the first day of the fiscal year as the default value. As a result, that date appears automatically when a new item is added to the list, and team members do not have to enter the date.
A default value can be a value that you specify, the date an item is added to a list or library, or the result of a calculation, which is called a calculated value. Calculated values are helpful when you want to display a specific date or time automatically but the date or time might vary depending on the item. To use a calculated value, you enter a formula as the default value. The formula can calculate a value based on information in other columns or system functions such as [today], to indicate the current date. For example, if you want the column to display a date that is 30 days after the current date, type the equation =[TODAY]+30 in the Calculated Value box. 59ce067264
