I am implementing the Filter feature using the combo cell types. So, i have a grid and the top row I want to have only combo boxes where user can pick an item to filter the data in the grid. grdWorkflows[1, 1].CellType = "ComboBox"; grdWorkflows[1, 1].ChoiceList = GetNames(); grdWorkflows[1, 1].CellValue = DEFAULT_FILTER_STRING; grdWorkflows[1, 1].ReadOnly = false; grdWorkflows[1, 1].DropDownStyle = GridDropDownStyle.Exclusive; It works fine.. but when I do a Sort, this row also get sorted. Is there a way I can freeze/fix this specific row, so that only the remaining rows will get rearranged when sorted?

I just wanted to add to the above message that I am creating a header row to host my Filter comboboxes. When i sort, the header row remains there, but the combo boxes move to other rows based on the sort and other values get moved to this header row. What I need is, when I sort, the header rows should stay fixed with the combo boxes in it. is there any way I can fix a row even when sorted?

How are you sorting things? Are you calling gridControl1.Data.SortByColumn to sort? If so, then there is an overload of that method that allows you to sepecify extra headers. Setting this parameter to 1 should allow the sort to ignore the 1st extra row. Are you setting grid.Rows.HeaderCount = 1 and grid.Rows.FrozenCount = 1 to freeze the extra rows from scrolling and make it look like a header (if you want that)?
