Question about celltypes such as PushButton and ComboBox

I noticed two things about these cell types that I want to change. 1) Their color 2) Their appearance. With #1, I simply don''t want the controls to be the same color as the systm colors. I want to be able to set the color. With regards to #2, even if I set the appearance to flat, when you mouse over it will draw a bevelled look. I do not want any bevelling what so ever. Does anyone know a way to modify this? I suppose I could do this at the source level but I''m looking for something less draconian. I believe flat should be flat.

Currently, there are no property settings that control the backcolor and feedback actions of a button cell. For a pushbutton, you can use a "Control" celltype and put a Windows Forms pushbutton into a cell in that manner. This would only be effective if you had a few such cells. In general, if you want to control the properties, you would have to derive a cell control and manage things yourself. In the Grid\Samples\In Depth\CellButtons sample, there is a derived cell button that displays a bitmap button. You could modify that to either use a bitmap button to color things, or draw you own button in the OnDraw override in the derived renderer class.
