Solution 1:

In order to hide the dateTime dropdown option, you can achieve your requirement by handling the TableControlCurrentCellShowingDropDown event. Please refer the below code snippet,

Code snippet

this.gridGroupingControl1.TableControlCurrentCellShowingDropDown += gridGroupingControl1_TableControlCurrentCellShowingDropDown;



gridGroupingControl1_TableControlCurrentCellShowingDropDown(object sender, GridTableControlCurrentCellShowingDropDownEventArgs e)


    e.Inner.Cancel = true;



Solution 2:

You can achieve your requirement also using ShowButtons property. Please refer the below code snippet,

this.gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.Columns["Date"].Appearance.AnyRecordFieldCell.ShowButtons = GridShowButtons.Hide;
