1. Is it possible to create a calendar control with a masked eidt box in the same cell?
2. Is it possible to have a autocomplete control in a cell?

Hi Scott,

Thanks for your interest in syncfusion Products.

Currently there is no cell style that mixes a maskedit with a dropdown calendar.

One possible solution is to handle the CurrentCellValidateString method and verify the text is valid with each keystroke. Below is some code snippets. Here is a sample showing this method.

private void Form1_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)


this.gridControl1[4, 2].BackColor = Color.LightPink;

this.gridControl1[4, 2].CellType = "MonthCalendar";

this.gridControl1[4, 2].CellValue = DateTime.Now;

this.gridControl1[4, 2].CellValueType = typeof(DateTime);

this.gridControl1[4, 2].Format = "M/d/yyyy";


private void gridControl1_CurrentCellValidateString(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridCurrentCellValidateStringEventArgs e)


GridCurrentCell cc = this.gridControl1.CurrentCell;

if(cc.RowIndex == 1 && cc.ColIndex == 1)




DateTime dt = DateTime.Parse(e.Text);




e.Cancel = true;




The second option is to use our DateTimePicker in a cell and format it. Here is a sample showing this implementation.

Please let me know if this serve your needs.
