CellValue with ANY object type

Is it possible to have a data source where the column type is any obitary object (say a custom collection etc.etc) and then have a custom cell renderer which uses the CellValue value during OnDraw to draw the custom object?

Yes, that should be possible. Check out the Samples\CellTypes\ComboboxCells sample for example. There you can find a DataRowView being stored as cell value and one of its the DataRowViews fields being displayed within the cell. Stefan

Thanks for the quick reply but.... That sample uses the non-bound grid and looks very complicated. ------ Here is a sample app which shows the problem and exactly what I'm trying to do. The CellValueType says it's an ArrayList which is correct but the CellValue just return a blank string!

Try using tbl.Columns.Add("col", typeof(object)); //.... row["col"] = new ArrayList(); instead of tbl.Columns.Add("col", typeof(ArrayList)); //... row["col"] = new ArrayList();
