FR - Queries Edit Inline Dropdowns

Post by PointsWell »

At the form level it is possible to
  1. Define the width of a drop down
  2. Create custom drop downs (e.g. BO.Attribute+': '+BO.Attribute2
  3. Have multi column drop downs
If you want to use these within a query though you are limited to the width allowed for the attribute on the grid and if you want to use a compound field then you are limited to having to create that compound as a persisted field (i.e. if you wanted to show Qty and Price in a drop down lookup on a form you could add that, but on a query you'd have to create a field on the BO that was calculated as BO.Calculate=BO.Qty+' '+BO.Price)

Can we show a little love to the Query and allow for more control over the drop down to prevent this:
