Hi -
I need to create a cell which contains a combobox plus a hideable button next to it. Do you have any samples demonstrating how to create this type of custom celltype (2 controls in one cell)?

I'm on version, .net 2.0

Hi Julie,

You need to create a custom celltype. It requires a model class and a renderer class. The model class handles the serialization requirements for the control and creates the renderer class. The renderer class handles the UI requirements of the cell. This sample in \Syncfusion\Essential Studio\\windows\Grid.Windows\Samples\In Depth\DerivedCellControlTutorial can be referred.

After creating the custom celltype, it has to be registered through CellModels.Add

this.gridControl1.CellModels.Add("MyComboBox", new MyComboBoxCellModel(this.gridControl1.Model));

Then you may use
style.CellType = "MyComboBox";

Please refer to the attachment for implemention.

Best regards,

Julie Levy

Thanks Haneef -
i've added custom cell types before, i just didn't know how to add additional button control. Looks pretty easy.
Thanks for your help and the sample,
