I have customized a copy of ForeignKey_Edit.ascx and its .cs file and they are working fine to a certain extent. In the process of inserting records I show 3 DropDownLists which reside inside of the ForeignKey_Edit control and I have managed to populate them accordingly but I can have only one label for the three of them as defined in the MetaData file. I have added custom legends to the left of the DropDownList but they look ugly because of the offset, they are shown aligned in the right column of the screen not where the other labels are displayed but that can be considered as well as cosmetic.
What is not so cosmetic is that only one of the three DropDownLists is displayed in the List page because I haven't been able to populate these fields in the non-edit version of the control FieldTemplates\ForeignKey.ascx with the same logic used before, non have I been able to populate the filter Filters\ForeignKey.ascx because the code used in its methods seems to be quite different from ones used in the fieldtemplate version of the control.
