Can I place a combo box in any type of grid control ????

Hello,

For example we have an option to view the check box in list view control, In the same way I want to insert a combo box. I have to insert 3 combo boxes in 3 coloumns. Is it possible?, If yes how and in which control?

Please provide me the source code also.

Hope I will get the solution for this problem.

Thanks in advance.
Hari.

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

Hi emoreau,

Thanks for your answer to my question. I am sorry to say that I am unable to get the output with your sample code, may be I have done wrong with your sample code to get the output. If possible, why don't you send an sample application to my email "hari@anion.com". So that it can be used by me to solve my problem.

One more requirement to my question is, rows will come dynamically depending on the no.of records in the database.

Hope you will understand and send me the sample application.

Regards,
Hari.

Have you considered using a DataRepeater control? To use it, you need to build your own OCX control that contains every controls (like textbox, combo, ...) to make a line of details.
