Drop down cells

I have a grid for which I''ve created several drop-down controls to use, based around your DropDownControlCellModel example. The problem I have is that I want to use components on the drop-down that themselves have a drop-down component (notably your own DateTimePickerAdv control). When this drop-down is activated, the grid drop-down closes. I can of course stop this from happening by using a DropDownFormCellModel and having the drop-down modal. However, I''d ideally like to have the drop-down close when the user clicks away from it rather than having to explicitly close the form with a button. Any ideas?

Mike, if you intend to use a dropdown in the Grid''s cells, then you should use a special GridDropDownContainer instead of the regular PopupControlContainer. The attached C# sample project shows you how this is done. Please look for "SF Comments" in source code.
