Exclusive Combo Box click

Hi, I''ve noticed that when I click on a cell to select (the cell not the arrow) which has a cell type of ComboBox and the DropDownStyle set to Exclusive, it drops down. Is there a simple way of preventing it from automatically dropping down when I click on the cell? Thanks, Sue

There is no property to control this. You can handle some events and prevent the drop. Here is code that worked for me in the ComboBoxCells sample.
bool clickOnCell = false;
private void gridControl1_CellClick(object sender, GridCellClickEventArgs e)
{
	this.clickOnCell = true;
}
private void gridControl1_CurrentCellMoving(object sender, GridCurrentCellMovingEventArgs e)
{
	this.clickOnCell = false;
}
private void gridControl1_CurrentCellShowingDropDown(object sender, GridCurrentCellShowingDropDownEventArgs e)
{
	if(clickOnCell)
	{
		e.Cancel = true;
		this.clickOnCell = false;
	}
}
Loader.
