GridControl - setting the DropDownWidth of a combobox

Hello, When I set the CellType of a cell in the GridControl to "ComboBox" how do I specify the DropDownWidth property? It appears the width is the same as the cell itself, but I''d like to increase it. Thanks!

The same combobox is used for any cell that has celltype "ComboBox". So, in order to set its width, you need to do it dynamically as each combobox is dropped (to allow different cells to have different widths). You can do this in the CurrentCellShowingDropDown event.
Private Sub grid_CurrentCellShowingDropDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As GridCurrentCellShowingDropDownEventArgs) Handles grid.CurrentCellShowingDropDown
	Dim cc As GridCurrentCell = Me.grdEstimate.CurrentCell
	//size the dropdown based on cc.RowIndex and cc.ColIndex...
	e.Size = New Size(200, e.Size.Height)
End Sub
