Suppose next situation,

There's a GGC bind a parent table with child.
In the parent rows ,there're two fields - State & City.
Now ,if I change a row's State from California to North Carolina, then I demand the other field
must only show respective cities to select.

The Following if my code snippet:
void Grouping_RecordValueChanged(object sender, GridRecordValueChangedEventArgs e)
if (e.FieldDescriptor.Name == "State")
DataTable dtCity = service.GetCityByStateId(e.Record.GetValue("State"));

GridGroupingControl grdGrouping = (GridGroupingControl)sender;
int i = 3;
foreach (GroupBase.Record r in grdGrouping.Table.Records)
if (r.GetValue("ID") == e.Record.GetValue("ID"))
grdGrouping.TableModel.ColStyles["City"].CellModel.Grid[i, 7].CellType = "ComboBox";
grdGrouping.TableModel.ColStyles["city"].CellModel.Grid[i, 7].DisplayMember = "Name";
grdGrouping.TableModel.ColStyles["City"].CellModel.Grid[i, 7].ValueMember = "ID";
grdGrouping.TableModel.ColStyles["City"].CellModel.Grid[i, 7].DataSource = dtCity;

Hi Ken,

Thank you for being patience.

To set any cell specific properties, the QueryCellStyleInfo event have to be handled. The following is the logic need to be used to set the style properties. Please try it and let us know if you need any further assistance.

+++++++++ Code Snippet +++++++++++
Hashtable hash = new Hashtable();
void gridGroupingControl1_RecordValueChanged(object sender, RecordValueChangedEventArgs e)
if (e.FieldDescriptor.Name == "State")
DataTable dtCity = service.GetCityByStateId(e.Record.GetValue("State"));
object key = e.Record.GetValue("ID");
hash.Add(dtCity, key);

void gridGroupingControl1_QueryCellStyleInfo(object sender, GridTableCellStyleInfoEventArgs e)
if (e.TableCellIdentity.DisplayElement.Kind == DisplayElementKind.Record)
Record r = e.TableCellIdentity.DisplayElement.GetRecord();
object key = r.GetValue("ID");
if (hash.Contains(key))
if (e.TableCellIdentity.Column.Name == "Column3")
e.Style.CellType = "ComboBox";
e.Style.DisplayMember = "Name";
e.Style.DataSource = dtCity;
e.Style.ValueMember = "ID";
