Is there a method for using ComboBox or other celltypes in virtual grid that I am using as an input front end to an excel workbook? (So that user selections are automatically reflected in the worksheet associated with the grid?)

Hi Jan,

THank you for using Syncfusion products.

In VirtualGrid you need to handle QueryCellInfo to set celltype in Virtual GridControl. See the code:

private void gridControl1_QueryCellInfo(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridQueryCellInfoEventArgs e)
//Other code

if(e.RowIndex > 0 && e.ColIndex > 0 && e.ColIndex <= 5)
e.Style.BackColor = Color.AliceBlue;
e.Style.CellType = "ComboBox";
e.Style.ChoiceList = sc;
e.Style.DropDownStyle = GridDropDownStyle.Exclusive;
e.Style.ShowButtons = GridShowButtons.Hide;


//Other code
e.Handled = true;
