GridControl Control

Hi, I''m using GridControl, and I have some usercontrol that i want to show in certain column. There is CellType that called Control, how can I used ( without creating new CellTypeModel), and I prefer to ascribe my control to column in design time. Is it possible? Thanks in advance.

The Control celltype will need a new instance of your control for every cell that uses it. So, it would be difficult and probably not too efficient to put such a control in every cell of a column. (You would not be able to to do this just by setting grid.ColStyles[colIndex] to set the style on the column. You would have to loop through each cell in the column, and set grid[rowIndex, colIndex].CellType and grid[rowIndex, colIndex].Control for every cell.) If you need a UserControl to appear in many cells, it is better to derive a celltype that will share a single instance of the control across many cells. The \Essential Suite\Windows\Grid.Windows\Samples\CellTypes\CalendarCells is one of several samples that does something like this.
