The datagrid control has a buttonclick event. This event is fantastic if you want a combo box to appear. But how?

If you set a button then dbGrid_buttonclick becomes an option. Use this to pop up a list of choices, for example.  To tell you the truth, it's essentially an add for dbgrid pro, which actually has built in functionality.

heh,
'how' was the question I believe... oops.  I hate dbgstandard, it is just good enough to make you want dbgpro.
Create your grid, assign your button in properties / layout.
Also create a dbcombo with .visible=false. Then double click the grid, and select the 'buttonclick' procedure which has appeared.  Enter code there, something like..

dbcombo.top=currentcell.top
dbcombo.left=currentcell.left
dbcombo.visible=true

That's it!!  This is something I thought I would use at some point like yourself, but really unless you buy dbgPro there are too many other, better user interfaces.

At form's activate event, set Button property to true for the columns you want combo box like the one below as an example:

grdDataGrid.Columns(2).Button = True
grdDataGrid.Columns(3).Button = True


On the grid BeforeColEdit event, put the following code:

    If grdDataGrid.Columns(ColIndex).DataField = "TransactionType" Or grdDataGrid.Columns(ColIndex).DataField = "Bank" Then
        ' Let the user edit by entering a key.
        If KeyAscii <> 0 Then Exit Sub
     
        ' Otherwise, cancel built-in editing and call the
        ' ButtonClick event to drop down List1.
        Cancel = True
        grdDataGrid_ButtonClick (ColIndex)
    End If

For my example grdDataGrid.Columns(2) bound to datafield "TransactionType" and grdDataGrid.Columns(3) bound to datafield "Bank". If user click on the button on these 2 fields, ButtonClick event will be called to display the list for user to select a value.

My answer shows a combo box.  There is no actual function/box built into the button, it's just there so you can access the buttonclick procedure.
