Hi, In the ColorEdit cell, the color selected covers the whole cell. Rather than this, I would like to have the color swatch on the left and its text on the right. Is it possible? YS

One way you can do this is to derive the COlorEdit cellrenderer/cellmodel classes, and tweak the implementation there. Overriding renderer.OnPrepareViewStyleInfo and not calling the base class avoids the backcolor being drawn. handling grid.DrawCellDisplayText allows you to draw the color swatch and string. http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/user/uploads/GC_Selections_b0c8abd3.zip

Thanks for that. :) Another help here. How about making the cell type of dropping down the GradientStyle just like the one when setting the GradientStyle of the Interior in the property grid?

Here is a forum thread that has a sample in it that displays a property grid using our grids. It has a UIEditor cell that I think should be able to display the type of dropdown you want. http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/forums/message.aspx?MessageID=25202
