I'm using the SSDBDropDown with SSDBGrid and I want the cell with the SSDBDropDown to show the text field (sport).
I have set the datafieldlist to sportid  and the datafieldtodisplay (dropdown) to sport. The thing that doesnt work is that the grid shows the sportid field instead of the sport field, when I use the dropdownlist the sport fields shows up. What is wrong?

tables
tblSports(dbdropdown)   tbl2
sportid sport           sport     .....
1        running    ->     1      .....
2        skiing            2
3        ...               1

I think you could use an hiden column with the ID field.Assign this column on click of SSDBDropDown control. This may not work
if you're grid's datamode is not Additemm.
