Trying to override the saving of a combobox cell in GGC

I had a table with an int column that represents an Id. In lieu of displaying a drop down of Ids, I want to display a list of strings that describe what the Ids represent. I've overriden the QueryCellStyleInfo and SaveCellFormattedText event handlers to try to deal with this, but for some reason, the changes don't persist when I click out of the cell I'm editing. Any ideas?

Hi Eric,

Use the ValueMember and DisplayMember property of the ComboBox cell to resolve this. Here is a code snippet to show this.

DataTable comboTable = new DataTable("DropDownCombo");

for(int i = 0 ;i <5;i++)
DataRow dr= comboTable.NewRow();
dr[0] = i;//ValueMember value..
dr[1] = "Item" + i;//DisplayMemberValue

gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.Columns["Id1"].Appearance.AnyRecordFieldCell.CellType = "ComboBox";
gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.Columns["Id1"].Appearance.AnyRecordFieldCell.DataSource = comboTable;
gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.Columns["Id1"].Appearance.AnyRecordFieldCell.ExclusiveChoiceList = true;

//That hold the cell text to be displayed in a cell.
gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.Columns["Id1"].Appearance.AnyRecordFieldCell.DisplayMember = "Item";
//That hold the text to be stored in a cell.
gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.Columns["Id1"].Appearance.AnyRecordFieldCell.ValueMember = "ID";

Here is a modified sample.

Best Regards,
