Databound grid custom cell type

Hello, I would like to use a special datepicker (class MyDateEditor), and maybee an other type of combobox, in databoundgrid. I have read and tryed a few things about custom control in datagrid but I could not figure out a solution for a databoundgrid (I would like to see the down arrow only when the cell is active). Could you please describe how to do that and provide me with a sample in VB? Thanks for your help. Chris

Here is a KB article on using a derived DateTimePicker control in a grid cell. http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/article.aspx?id=10435 In the user''s guide, there is also a section on deriving your custom cell types. It discusses the two classes that go into a custom cell type, the CellModel class and the CellRenderer, and refers to the Grid\Samples\In Depth\DerivedCellControlTutorial that we ship in the samples. Here is a list of VB samples that we ship with custom cell types in them.
