I have inserted a button in a column of a grid

dbgrid1.columns(1).button=true
Now the button is displayed
Can anybody give me a sample code for the Button_click event for this?
Thank you!

This example is used to make a datacombo appear in the cell when the button is clicked. You can use any other control in this situation, a list box or combo or whatever.

Private Sub DBGrid1_ButtonClick(ByVal ColIndex As Integer)
' Assign the Column object to Co because it will be used
  ' more than once.
  Dim Co As Column
   
  Set Co = DBGrid1.Columns(ColIndex)
   
  ' Position and drop down list1 at the right edge of the
  ' current cell.
  DataCombo1.Left = DBGrid1.Left + Co.Left + Co.Width
  DataCombo1.Top = DBGrid1.Top + DBGrid1.RowTop(DataGrid1.Row)
  DataCombo1.Visible = True
  DataCombo1.ZOrder 0
  DataCombo1.SetFocus
End Sub

Private Sub DBGrid1_Scroll(Cancel As Integer)
' Hide the list if we scroll.
  DataCombo1.Visible = False
End Sub

Private Sub List1_Click()
  'Update the appropriate field in the record.
  DataCombo1.Visible = False
End Sub

When the button is clicked, the data combo is displayed next to the field. Choosing an item
from the list will then update the record (you need to put in the appropriate code for this) and hide the datacombo
