Can I use a combobox in the gridgroupingcontrol?

Hi, I''m using the groupedgridcontrol 2.0.5.0. Could someone please tell me if I can have a combobox for a cell, linked to an IList? Thanks very much in advance, Damien

You can set the DisplayMember/ValueMember/DataSource property for the column''s style. this.gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.Columns["Col"].Appearance.AnyRecordFieldCell.CellType = "ComboBox"; this.gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.Columns["Col"].Appearance.AnyRecordFieldCell.DataSource = someDataList; this.gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.Columns["Col"].Appearance.AnyRecordFieldCell.DisplayMember = "displayCol"; this.gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.Columns["Col"].Appearance.AnyRecordFieldCell.ValueMember = "valueCol";

Hi Clay, Where can I see what the possible string values are for CellType? I would like to have a DateTimePicker but would like to set this manually so possibly in Appearance.AnyRecordFieldCell.CellType Thanks!

You can see the celltypes in a dropdown if you open any Appearance.XXXXX.CellType property in the designer. You can also see a list if you look for CellType in the Help Index for Essential Grid. If you just want to set the Date, you can use the "MonthCalendar" CellType. If you want to set the time as well, then you woul dhave to add your own celltype. Here is a KB that has the code you would need. http://www.syncfusion.com/support/kb/grid/Default.aspx?ToDo=view&questId=35

Hi Clay, The example you posted uses a GridControl and I see you can use GridControl.CellModels.Add to add the custom model. However, I can''t see the equivalent for the GridGroupingControl. There is a .Appearance.XXXX.CellModel but this is read-only and wouldn''t enable me to give the model a name to be used in .CellType anyway. Please can you point me in the right direction. Thanks!

You use the this.gridGroupingControl1.TableModel.CellModels collection. See this sample. \Syncfusion\Essential Studio\3.2.1.0\Windows\Grid.Windows\Samples\Grouping\CustomCellTypes

Hi Clay, I''m on 2.1.0.9. Is there an equivalent example? Thanks.

Here is a copy of the 3210 sample that I was able to build with 2051. I think it should build OK with 2109 too. http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/user/uploads/CustomCellTypes_a6159f38.zip
