Anyone know how to add a Button column into a DataGrid within Windows Forms?  I don't want to use anyone else's Dll(RustomSoft has a great one).

Specifically I want a column that has data in it, but when you click on a cell it will run a query based on the row ID and display an informational window.

Let me know if you need more info.  Thanks.

Hi coopey247

I've managed to accomplish taht, but in order to do so, I had to implement my own ButtonGridControlColumn class that inhertis from GridControlColumn.

This class is the one that is going to be responsible for handling the events of the button and it is the responsible for assuring that the button appears in the column.

I hope this helps and if you have any doubts regarding this issue, please let me know.
