Is it possible to put a combobox on a cell on a StringGrid ?  I'm using Delphi 5, and I want the user to select data from a combobox on cell 1, and type data for other cells.

thanks

Are the items of the comobox stored in a Table?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

You can create one dynamically at run time.
In this example you start with a blank form, drop a stringgrid on the form and a button (to close the app).

Click on a cell of the stringgrid and a combobox will be created inside the string grid.

unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,
  StdCtrls, Grids;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    StringGrid1: TStringGrid;
    Button1: TButton;
    ComboBox1: TComboBox;
    procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
    procedure StringGrid1Click(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  Close;
end;

procedure TForm1.StringGrid1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  TempComboBox : TComboBox;
begin
  TempComboBox := TComboBox.Create(self);
  TempComboBox.Parent := StringGrid1;
  TempComboBox.Width := 100;
  TempComboBox.Height := 50;
  TempComboBox.Top := 1;
  TempComboBox.Left := 1;
  TempComboBox.Items.Add('One');
  TempComboBox.Items.Add('Two');
  TempComboBox.Items.Add('Three');
  TempComboBox.Visible := true;
 // TempComboBox.Free;
end;

end.

I would go with Drareq's example...much better than my quick-n-dirty solution.
