How do i create a property pane?

Hi there,

In my application i need to create a property pane,
much like the property page in the vb ide.  The pane contains the different property names and next to it their values.  The idea is that the pane can contain 2 types of properties.  Free text and options.  For the free text i know i can use a grid control.  But what should i use to display the options in a dropdown box IN the grid?

Does anyone have some good code examples?

Thanks in advance.

You can always use a combo box, the key is to know which type of grid you are using. In essence though on the _EnterCell() event or equivalent of your grid that requires the combo box you place a previously hidden combo over the cell and setfocus to this. You can then use the combo as if it were part of the cell and use the Click event of this to save the value to the cell itself.
