Setting the celltype of an entire column

Is it possible to set the celltype of an entire column? For example: I have a dataset with 10 rows and 5 columns that I pass to the grid to populate. I always want column 3 to contain a checkbox. Is there anyway of doing this short of selecting the column as a range, expanding it, then looping through the GetNextCell method and setting each cell individually?

If this is a GridDataBoundGrid, the you set teh style information for a column using the GridBoundColumn.StyleInfo property. You get this object either using the grid.GridBoundColumns collection if you have explicily added GridBoundColumns either using the designer or from code. If you have not explicitly added GridBoundColumns, then you access the GridBoundColumn from the grid.Binder.InternalColumns collection. Check out this KB for some code snippets. If this is a GrodControl, you use the grid.ColStyles collection to set the style information for a column.

It was a gridcontrol, so the ColStyles is the answer. Great! Thank you!
