What are the conditions/scenarios for using GridControl, GridDataboundGrid and GroupingGrid?

What I''d really like to do is have a databound grid that can be grouped. TIA

If you want grouping support, you need to use the GridGroupingControl. It is nound to a datasource like GridDataBoundGrid. GridControl is a cell oriented grid that allows you to set styles on a cell by cell, row by row, column by column basis. You can also use it in a virtual mode that allows it to hold not data, dynamically getting its data through events that you handle to provide the data. GridDataBoundGrid is a column oriented grid that needs to have a datasource set. It is the closest control to a Windows Forms DataGrid. It can display hierarchical data. But it cannot be grouped. GridGroupingControl allows you to group a Datasource. It allows for summaries (both built-in and custom), and true nested tables.

Hi Clay, Thanks for clarifying this for me. I was wondering if it is possible to place controls inside cells of a GridGroupingControl. For example, can I put a combobox into a "Select State" column of a GridGroupingControl? I noticed that the GridGrouping samples did not do this. Why? I also noticed that for Date types, it automatically used a month calendar control. >If you want grouping support, you need to use the GridGroupingControl.

Yese, you can put a combobox in a column in a GridGroupingControl. You add it to the style you find in ColumnDescriptor.Appearance.AnyRecordFieldCell. You can do this from the designer or from code. this.gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.Columns["someColumn"].Appearance.AnyRecordFieldCell.CellType = "ComboBox"; //also set the DataSource, DisplayMamber, ValueMember
