Hi Nedu,

You can do this by changing the Celltype of the checkbox column to combox and also you need to set the choicelist of that column. Here is a code snippet that show this.

this.gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.Columns["BooleanColumnName"].Appearance.AnyRecordFieldCell.CellType = "ComboBox";

System.Collections.Specialized.StringCollection sc = new System.Collections.Specialized.StringCollection();
sc.Add(true.ToString() );
sc.Add(false.ToString() );
this.gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.Columns["BooleanColumnName"].Appearance.AnyRecordFieldCell.ChoiceList = sc;

Best regards,
