I'm writing a data import utility for my application and what I'd like to do is mimick the Field Chooser functionality of Outlook. I'll have a collection of fields from my database that can be mapped on top of the columns in the flat datasource. What I'd like to do is as they drag a column from the pallette onto the grid I'd like to dynamically create a GridBoundColumn and put it in the drag phase. Can this be done? Also, just noticed that you included a sample of the 2.0 grid (grouping) and it looks awesome! Is the 2.0 Suite in beta and if so can I get a copy for evaluation (I'm a customer)? Thanks, Sean

Hi Sean, can you open a support incident? Then we can give you access to a first beta once it is available in two weeks or ealier. I think that will also help you with the field chooser. In the grouping demo we have a similar situation where the grid allows you to drag a column header from the grid into the GroupBy area (which itsself is also a grid). You will have to set Control.Capture = true for the originating control. While dragging the mouse over the grid you have to check the cell below the cursor. But as I said you could just take our code as an example implementation then. That would be easier then explaining it here. Stefan

Stefan, Given that the utility is a future development effort, I can wait for the 2.0 Suite. I'll open an incident for the beta. Thanks, Sean
