i want to move the datacombo(it is on the 3rd col on the datagrid) on the col up and down,and it should appear only on the cell which is clicked by the user otherwise it should remain visible false
datagrid is connectd to a table thru adodc
i am tried the following code
DataGrid_mousedown event
If DataGrid1.ColContaining(X) = 4 Then
   'Dim DY, DX, RowValue, ColValue, CellLeft, CellTop
    ColValue = DataGrid1.ColContaining(X)
    RowValue = DataGrid1.RowContaining(Y)
    'Get the height of the cell.
    DY = DataGrid1.RowHeight
    'Get the width of the cell.
    DX = DataGrid1.Columns(ColValue).Width
    CellLeft = DataGrid1.Columns(ColValue).Left
   
    CellTop = DataGrid1.RowTop(RowValue)
   
    CellLeft = CellLeft - DataGrid1.RowHeight
    DataCombo1.Left = DataCombo1.Left + CellLeft - 1050
    DataCombo1.Top = DataCombo1.Top + CellTop - 160

Add a ListBox and make its visible property to False.


'Add this code to the form declaration

Option Explicit
Dim intColIdx As Integer
 'This will contain the index for the current  cell in the dbgrid
Dim blnListShow As Boolean 'is the list showing or not


Private Sub DBGrid1_ButtonClick(ByVal ColIndex As Integer)
Dim intTop As Integer
intColIdx = ColIndex
If blnListShow = False Then 'if the list is not showing then...
blnListShow = True
List1.Left = DBGrid1.Columns(ColIndex).Left + 360
intTop = DBGrid1.Top + (DBGrid1.RowHeight * (DBGrid1.Row +2))
 List1.Top = intTop
 List1.Width = DBGrid1.Columns(ColIndex).Width + 15
                     List1.Visible = True
                  List1.SetFocus
Else 'if the list is show, hide it
             blnListShow = False
              List1.Visible = False
End If
End Sub


          Private Sub Form_Load()
                blnListShow = False 'initialize
           End Sub

        Private Sub List1_Click()
DBGrid1.Columns(intColIdx).Text = List1.Text
 'set the value of the dbgrid
  List1.Visible = False 'hide the list
        End Sub

                      Private Sub List1_LostFocus()
                          blnListShow = False
                          List1.Visible = False
                      End Sub
