ComboBox in DataBoundGrid

I am trying to use a ComboBox in a databound grid. Here is the criteria: 1. grid must be bound to a datatable. 2. drop down items come from a stringcollecion, or preferrably another datatable. Here is my current test source. // set the data source to the datatable grdObjects.DataSource = dt; grdObjects.BeginUpdate(); // create a sting collection System.Collections.Specialized.StringCollection items = new System.Collections.Specialized.StringCollection(); items.Add("One"); items.Add("Two"); items.Add("Three"); items.Add("Four"); items.Add("Five"); items.Add("Six"); items.Add("Seven"); items.Add("Eight"); items.Add("Nine"); items.Add("Ten"); // setup the dropdown boxes in column 2 for (int i=0;i

Sorry, I should have added, that the code runs through just fine, but the dropdowns do not display.

In a GridDataBoundGrid, you set style properties for a column using the GridBoundColumn.StyleInfo property of that column. See this KB article. http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/article.aspx?id=562 In a GridDataBoundGrid, the code you listed (using an indexer on individual cells to set style properties other than CellValue or Text) does not work.
