My requirement is to add a DateTimePickerAdv (not the MonthCalendar) control to a particular column of a nested/child table. How can I do this?

Hi Anupama, You can create a custom CellType and then register that through TableModel.CellModels.Add, a sample we ship is \Syncfusion\Essential Studio\4.1.0.9\windows\Grid.Grouping.Windows\Samples\CustomCellTypes. There are many other samples implementing Custom CellTypes in other grids. Here is one sample, \Syncfusion\Essential Studio\4.1.0.9\windows\Grid.Windows\Samples\CellTypes\CalendarCells to get an idea of creating a CellType. Once the CellType is added through the CellModels then it can be used anywhere as like other CellTypes. Regards, Stanley

This is fine for writing custom controls and adding them - for which I can write my own CreateRenderer functions etc? What about adding existing controls like DateTimePickerAdv? How will I get access to their GridCellModelBase object? I will not be able to do a gridGroupingControl1.TableModel.CellModels.Add without that. >Hi Anupama, > >You can create a custom CellType and then register that through TableModel.CellModels.Add, a sample we ship is \Syncfusion\Essential Studio\4.1.0.9\windows\Grid.Grouping.Windows\Samples\CustomCellTypes.

Hi Anupama, The GridGroupingControl supports the CellTypes that are specified in the below link. http://syncfusion.com/Products/product.aspx?p=5 The DateTimePickerAdv is a Control which has been shipped with the Microsoft Corporation and it is not a CellType that can be added to the grid. We have created MonthCalendar celltype for the users to have its functionality. But if you want to use the DateTimePickerAdv, you can add it with the Control CellType. Tell me if this helps you. Best Regards, Leo.

Hi Anupama, Sorry for the typo made in the following line ''The DateTimePickerAdv is a Control which has been shipped with the Microsoft Corporation''. We regret for this error. The DateTimePickerAdv is one of our control and Month Calendar, a Microsoft Control for which a celltype has been created. You can also create a celltype with the DateTimePickerAdv based on the custom celltypes samples we ship. Let me know if you wish to have a sample with that custom celltype. Regards, Leo.

Yes please. If you could send me a sample it will be great. >Hi Anupama, > >Sorry for the typo made in the following line >''The DateTimePickerAdv is a Control which has been shipped with the Microsoft Corporation''. > >We regret for this error. > >The DateTimePickerAdv is one of our control and Month Calendar, a Microsoft Control for which a celltype has been created.

Hi Anupama, Sorry for the inconvenience caused. The custom celltype could not be used in the nested grid. This defect has been logged, here is the to the open issues. This is the Sample with DateTimePickerAdv control used as CellType. Best regards, Stanley

Unforunately I need this control in the nested table. I guess I will just have to wait for the fix.

Hi Anupama, I am sorry to say that as a bug, while it was not. The custom CellType can also be placed in the nested tables With some modifications in DateTimeCell.cs. Please refer the modified sample. Best regards, Stanley
