Dropdown calendar events

I need to display the date as yyyyMMdd. I want to use a drop down calendar. Can I trap on the calendar events when the user clicks on the down arrow to correctly load the calendar and went the user selects a date.

Here are some trys at doing this. First, set the style.Format for the cell to your "yyyyMMdd" format. (In a GridDataBoundGrid, this would be in the GridBoundColumn or the Binder.InternalColumns). Then handle the CurrentCellShowingDropDown and CurrentCellCloseDropDown events to swap things out.
private void gridDataBoundGrid1_CurrentCellShowingDropDown(object sender, GridCurrentCellShowingDropDownEventArgs e)
{
	GridCurrentCell cc = this.gridDataBoundGrid1.CurrentCell;
	if(cc.Renderer is GridDropDownMonthCalendarCellRenderer)
	{
		GridDropDownMonthCalendarCellRenderer cr = cc.Renderer as GridDropDownMonthCalendarCellRenderer;
		DateTime dt = (DateTime) cc.Renderer.ControlValue;
		cc.Renderer.ControlText = dt.ToString("g");
	}
}

private void gridDataBoundGrid1_CurrentCellCloseDropDown(object sender, PopupClosedEventArgs e)
{
	GridCurrentCell cc = this.gridDataBoundGrid1.CurrentCell;
	if(cc.Renderer is GridDropDownMonthCalendarCellRenderer)
	{
		GridDropDownMonthCalendarCellRenderer cr = cc.Renderer as GridDropDownMonthCalendarCellRenderer;
		DateTime dt = (DateTime) cc.Renderer.ControlValue;
		cc.Renderer.ControlText = dt.ToString("yyyyMMdd");
	}
}

Clay, I'm using a virtual grid and I don't seem to have a reference to the CurrentCellShowingDropDown event

What version are you running? It should be in the latest 1.5.2.0 public release available from your support home page. I can see it both in intellisense and in the DevStu fucntionality for adding event handlers.

Attached is a sample that runs in the 1.6 beta. It will not work in the 1.5.2.0 latest public release though. If you own the product and submit a Direct Trac support incident, you can get a download link for the latet 1.6 beta code.

Just checked and I am using version 1.5.1.1 of the grid. Will it work there. Either way I will download the latest. BTW here is the code that I'm using. Maybe you can see something Public Sub New(ByVal Columns As cColumnCollection, ByVal dtGrid As DataTable, ByVal Grid As Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridControl, ByVal BusinessLogic As cBusinessLogic, ByVal TableName As String) ' Remember what we're binding to m_Columns = Columns m_dtGrid = dtGrid m_dvGrid = m_dtGrid.DefaultView ' Use the default view from the table m_Grid = Grid m_BusinessLogic = BusinessLogic m_sTableName = TableName ' Link them up AddGridHandlers() End Sub #End Region #Region " Grid Events and Binding " Private Sub AddGridHandlers() AddHandler m_Grid.QueryCellInfo, AddressOf GridQueryCellInfo AddHandler m_Grid.QueryRowCount, AddressOf GridQueryRowCount AddHandler m_Grid.SaveCellInfo, AddressOf GridSaveCellInfo

I just download the new verison 1.5.2 and when use the object browser to look at the sig of CurrentCellShowedDropDown is use System.EventArgs not GridCurrentCellShowingDropDownEventArgs. Is that a bug? The sig from the object browser is CurrentCellShowedDropDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)

I get the sample to load but the problem is now the datetime. Dim dt As DateTime = CType(cc.Renderer.ControlValue, DateTime) does not work becasue the date string is "yyyyMMdd" and it does not convert. Is there a way to convert this or do I have to do it manually (strip the date apart and covert it to a format that DataTime reconizes).

As I said earlier, the code I uploaded requires the 1.6 beta. It will not work with the 1.5.2.0 that you downloaded. To get 1.6 beta, submit a support incident and request it. if s holds a date in format "yyyyMMdd", you can get a DateTime object d from it using DateTimeParseExact. Dim d As DateTime = DateTime.ParseExact(s, "yyyyMMdd", null, System.Globalization.DateTimeStyles.None)

Clay, Thanks for the reply with the ParseExact method. I did miss the fact that I needed V1.6 to run the sample.
