    Is it possible to have a grid with a dropdown column with countries that shows the selected country code in the grid and the countries names in the dropdown? If yes, how? Tried to search for it in the documentation but not easy to find…

    Hi jespernielsen,

    You can use the valueMemeber property of the jqxDropdownList and I have created a quick code snippet that can showcase how to set it:

                            text: 'Ship City', datafield: 'ShipCity', width: 150, columntype: 'dropdownlist',
                            createeditor: function (row, column, editor) {
                                var source =
                                        datatype: "jsonp",
                                        datafields: [
                                            { name: 'countryName' },
                                            { name: 'name' },
                                            { name: 'population', type: 'float' },
                                            { name: 'continentCode' }
                                        url: "http://api.geonames.org/searchJSON",
                                        data: {
                                            featureClass: "P",
                                            style: "full",
                                            maxRows: 50,
                                            username: "jqwidgets"
                                    var dataAdapter = new $.jqx.dataAdapter(source);
                                            source: dataAdapter, 
                                            selectedIndex: 0,
                                            displayMember: "continentCode",

    Let me know if that works for you!
