How to set color of the text in the grid shown when MultiColumnComboBox is dropped down?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: MultiColumnComboBox |
Published Date: April 30, 2011 |
Last Revised Date: July 10, 2014


To change the text color we need to handle the QueryCellInfo event of the embedded grid in MultiColumnComboBox's DropDown event.


private void MultiColumnComboBox1_DropDown(object sender, EventArgs e)


GridControl grid = this.MultiColumnComboBox1.ListBox.Grid;

grid.QueryCellInfo += new GridQueryCellInfoEventHandler(grid_QueryCellInfo);


void grid_QueryCellInfo(object sender, GridQueryCellInfoEventArgs e)


e.Style.TextColor = Color.Blue;



Private Sub MultiColumnComboBox1_DropDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles MultiColumnComboBox1.DropDown

Dim grid As GridControl = Me.MultiColumnComboBox1.ListBox.Grid

AddHandler grid.QueryCellInfo, AddressOf grid_QueryCellInfo

End Sub

Private Sub grid_QueryCellInfo(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As GridQueryCellInfoEventArgs)

e.Style.TextColor = Color.Blue

End Sub
