 I'm using DBGrid control. I have set a column's Button property to True. Now I have a drop down in the column. I'd like to show three different options to choose from in the list. How can I fill up the drop down list?

You would use the X Y value to position a listbox directly under the cell to emulate a dropdown effect. You can download a tutorial that contains working projects that demonstrate this at:

I thought there could be something general to cover the issue.

Huh? The download is a *tutorial*. It covers exactly what you are looking for with a sample project and a help file. What more do you want? If you didn't understand the tutorial you should have added a comment asking for more help. If this answer didn't solve your problem then you should have rejected it. Instead, you grade it with a C and leave a comment indictating that you're unsatisfied.
You're welcome
