    Hi there, 

    Just wondering if there is an easy way to create dropdownlist within a widget designer.

    I tried using Thunder to create the initial designer.   I then had to modify the ASCX and change the generated "literal" to a "dropdownlist".    I then had to wire in a couple of classes to act as the code behind so that I could manually initialize the list  (the ascx.ca and the ascx.designer.cs) .... escenially I am creating a user control 

    I saw a blog posting based on Sitefinity 4 that suggested that this was the correct way to go, but I am wondering if there is an easier way to do this now?

    thx for any advice that can be offered.

    -Sheldon
