I have a GGC for which I've enabled the AddNewRecord feature. I'd like to have provide predetermined choices for selected cells and list them in a drop down. Other values are typed in by the user. Do you have any suggestions?

Hi Dimitri,

Thank you for being patience.

The following is a technique to have combobox in the GridGroupingControl. Please try it and let us know if you need any further assistance.

By Code:
StringCollection collection = new StringCollection();
collection.AddRange(new string[] {"One","Two","Three","Four"});
GridTableDescriptor tableDesc = this.gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor;
tableDesc.Columns[“Col1”].Appearance.AnyRecordFieldCell.CellType = "ComboBox";
tableDesc.Columns[“Col1”].Appearance.AnyRecordFieldCell.DataSource = collection;

By Design time:
Please refer to the following video clip to set the dropdown in the designer mode.

Have a nice day.

Best regards,
