ASP.NET: Images in DropDownLists?

I am having a major dilemma; apparently there is no easy way to add images to list items in a DropDownList. This to me seems ludicrous. I would like my user to be able to pick an icon from a dropdown and afterwards be able to grab that value to update my database. I’ve seen it done elsewhere, I just don’t remember where. I’ve seen solutions like EasyListBox, but I’m not about to shell out $100 for this little bit of functionality, and I’ll be damned if I’m gonna stare at their advertisements in their demo version. I’ve also seen people suggest a DHTML (CSS/Javascript) solution from DynamicDrive.com, but I was unable to find any sort of applicable solution.

THERE MUST BE A WAY. Please help!

Status: Unsolved
Solution: None yet.
