I am using a grid with a DropDownCell. However, I wanted a custom grid to appear, so I derived a cell control from DropDownGrid to acheive this using the examples posted in another thread. The problem i am having is that the text in a cell with the drop down grid disappears when the drop down button is selected. I have attached a modified version of some code posted earlier to demonstrate the problem. I tried to fix the problem in the PrepareViewStyleInfo event, but it didn't solve the problem. Any help is much appreciated.!
