When a ComboBox cell has its DropDownStyle set to Exclusive as soon as the cell is selected, the drop down appears.

Is there a way to stop this?

Hi Steve,

You can handle the CurrentCellShowingDropDown event of the grid and set e.Cancel to true for cancel the dropdown. Here is a code snippet.

private void gridDataBoundGrid1_CurrentCellShowingDropDown(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridCurrentCellShowingDropDownEventArgs e)
GridCurrentCell cc = (sender as GridDataBoundGrid).CurrentCell;
GridComboBoxCellRenderer cr = cc.Renderer as GridComboBoxCellRenderer;
if( cr != null )
e.Cancel = true;

Best Regards,
