How do I Add a Pop-Up Text Box Cell?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: GridControl |

By default, text box cannot be added to the DropDown cell. This can be achieved by creating the custom CellModel (PopUpTextBoxCellModel) and CellRenderer (PopUpTextBoxCellRenderer) from GridDropDownCellModel and GridDropDownCellRenderer.

The text box can be added to the DropDown cell by override the InitializeDropDownContainer method in custom CellRenderer(PopUpTextBoxCellRenderer).

The following are the steps that need to be followed.

Step 1: Create PopTextBoxCellModel by deriving it from GridDropDownCellModel class.





Step 2: Create PopUpTextBoxCellRenderer from the GridDropDownCellRenderer.





Step 3: Set the PopUpTextBoxCellModel to GridControl.
