Combobox in DataGridView

Hi, How do I setup a selected value for a combobox column in datagridview? Unlike a regular combobox I can't use: SelectedValue = 1; I'll give an example :Let's say I have a datagrid which is consisted of two datasets tables: one table which contains 300 entries for different types of cars, and a combobox column which contains a list of 10 car makers (that's the second table). The car maker's code is the primary key in the combobox column's value member and the foreign key in the first table. How do I load the datagrid so that t the combobox will display the correct car maker for every car entry (300 in total)? here's my current code: private void SetupDataGridView() { this.Controls.Add(carsGrid); DataGridViewComboBoxColumn comboGrid = new DataGridViewComboBoxColumn(); carsGrid.DataSource = dsCars.Tables[1]; carsGrid.DisplayMember = "CarMakerName"; carsGrid.ValueMember = "CarMakerID"; carsGrid.DataSource = dsCars.Tables[0]; carsGrid.Columns.Add(comboGrid); } Thanks, Udi

How to make a DataGridView Cell/Column not enterable / selecatble

Hi, I am trying to make a Column in a DataGridView non-entaerable (the user should not be able to set focus to the cell neither using the mouse nor the keyboard). I already tried to change the CurrentCell property in the CellStateChanged. But in this event-handler the CurrenCell is the "old" one; setting it to any value doesn't help, because the value is set after calling this procedure. In Delphi there is an event-handler for entering a cell, where you can tell whether the user is allowed to enter a cell. Is there anything comparable in C#? Any other suggestions?

Problem : Need to make COM InterOp at runtime using reflections Passing Pointers as parameters?

Hello, I need to make COM IntetrOp at runtime using reflections. My native COM Object's exposed methods have some parameters as pointers (DWORD*) and some double pointers (DWORD**) and some are user defined types(e.g SomeUDTType objSmeUDTType) and vice versa its pointer(i.e. SomeUDTType *pSomeUDTType). Now for dynamic method invocation, we have single option for passing parameters as array of object i.e object[] and filling this array statically. But I need to pass pointers and references and pointers to pointers. For now how can I be able to populate object array as mixed data of simple data types, pointers or references and pointers to pointers. Working Example: Native COM exposed method : STDMETHODIMP MyCallableMethod(DWORD *value_1,BSTR *bstrName,WESContext a_wesContex Translated by tlbimp.exe (COMInterop) UDTINIDLLib.RuntimeCallingClass.MyCallableMethod(ref uint, ref string, UDTINIDLLib Now calling these methods at runtime using reflection at runtime, See here :        Assembly asembly = Assembly.LoadFrom("E:\\UDTInIDL\\Debug\\UDTINIDLLib.dll");         Type[] types = asembly.GetTypes();         Type type = null;    //foreach (Type oType in types)         {             try      &nb

Different ComboBox in Each Row of DataGridView

Hi,   Can I have a ComboBoxColumn in a DataGridView with different items in the ComboBox of each row?   For instance, suppose there's a DataGridView in a Windows Form with rows of customer info. There's a column that shows the gender and a ComboBoxColumn to set the title. If the customer is male, the ComboBox will contain "Mr", "Dr" etc, otherwise it will have "Miss", "Mrs" etc.   How can this be done?   I saw this post but can't quite understand what it means. http://forums.microsoft.com/msdn/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=3311173&SiteID=1     Thanks, ywb

Problem whit ComboBox binding in WPF

Here are my main classes: Configuration { List<Environment > EnvironList, Source ConfigSource } Source { List<FileSource > FileSourceList } FileSource {} inherits class     SourceInfo { string Id, string Source } Environment { List<FileDestination > EnvirFileList } FileDestination { List<String> DestinationList } and inherits class     Info { string SourceId } Info .SourceId refers to SourceInfo .Id. Example: Id="mySource" Source="C:\PathToMyFiles" The Configuration is read from an XML file. In my display, I want to gatter all the SourceInfo objects of my Configuration and put them in a comboBox, to be available for selection in the Environment ->FileDestination ->Info .SourceId. So far, no problem. I also want to select the current value. I did that by putting it at the begining of the list and selecting that index when the list is created. The problem I have is when I try to modify the value. When I change the selection, it shows me the new value, but that value is never saved. If I reload the list, the old value is selected. Also, when I add a new File in the  Environment .EnvirFileList, the SourceId is never added to the XML file. That XML file is create with Serialized properties from my classes. If I remove the ComboBox and use a textbox, the value is added to the XML file. Below is

DataGridView ComboBox visual style differs for same app on different systems



In a windows forms application developed with VB2008 Express the DataGridView ComboBox is rendered differently on different systems. 


On Windows XP Pro SP3, where the app was developed, the combo box appears as follows:

Well, apparently images can't be pasted to these threads so I'll have to try to describe the appearance.

Appearance in Windows XP:

Rectangular box with the same shape, color and appearance as a DataGridView TextBox except that it has a square drop-down button at it's right edge the same color as a ToolStrip or ScrollBar buttons/elevator.

Appearance in Windows 7:

Rounded rectangular gray box, lighter on the top half to make it appear bowed out along it's horizontal axis with a rectangular drop-down button, also gray.  This appearance is displeasing alongside the flat, rectangular, white background text and image boxes in the same DataGridView.

Additional information:

Salient DataGridView properties:
AutoSizeColumnsMode: None
AutoSizeRowsMode: None
BorderStyle: FixedSingle
CellBorderStyle: Single

Problem with IE 6 in displaying colours inside a Combobox


I have a dropdownlist which has to display the list of colours. It works fine in IE 7 and IE 8 but in IE 6 I am not able to see the Colours or the dropdownlist when I scroll the toolbar down as i have long list of colours. Is it happening because something is hiding the coloured dropdownlist?

DropDownList lstSeriesColours = new DropDownList();

lstSeriesColours.ID = string.Format("lstSeriesColours_{0}", rowID);Unit.Pixel(80);"Name";"Value";

lstSeriesColours.DataTextField = "Name";

lstSeriesColours.DataValueField = "Value";

Datagridview combobox.DroppedDown issues that require (2) clicks and not (1)


I have been reviewing following link regarding datagridview.combobox.droppeddown...the last entry is apparently not VB.NET.  Else I am missing something.


The last entry supposedly will work, however I can't come close.

Also, to expand on the issue I have is that I am attempting to click on a combobox cell at any time...whether it's the currently selected row or a different row in the gridview.  If it is a different row, that is really where I experience the problem.  I've attempted to use the following:


Private Sub dataGridView1_EditingControlShowing(ByVal sender As Object, _


ByVal e As DataGridViewEditingControlShowingEventArgs) _
