GridGroupingControl: Add ComboBox control to ColumnHeaderCell?

What are the correct steps to enable ComboBox / DropDown for a
GridColumnDescriptor (in GridGroupingControl) which has the properties set as in the provided example with a topic header:

"Quick Start -Cell Controls
How do I put a ComboBox in a header cell in a GridControl or GridDataBoundGrid?"

.. Appearance.ColumnHeaderCell.CellType = "ComboBox";

As you can see from attached screenshot it seems that the column header's rendered but the control itself isn't enabled. What steps I'm missing here? Example works great with GridDataBoundGrid and header's control is populated with values and I'm able to select etc.

Thanks in advance

(we're still using ancient version
