Populate Combobox in Datagridview Control

VB 2005

I am trying to populate a combobox in a Datagridview control with data from an arraylist.  I can't figure out how to bind the arraylist to the combobox.

The combobox is in the first cell of the Datagridview.

Does anyone know how to do this?

Thanks

You could do something like this:

Dim comboboxColumn As New DataGridViewComboBoxColumn()
comboboxColumn.DataPropertyName = "ptitle"
comboboxColumn.HeaderText = "Title"
comboboxColumn.DropDownWidth = 50
comboboxColumn.Width = 50
comboboxColumn.MaxDropDownItems = 5
comboboxColumn.FlatStyle = FlatStyle.Flat

Dim dbComboCommand As New OleDbCommand()
dbComboCommand.Connection = dbConn
dbComboCommand.CommandText = "SELECT title FROM Titles"
Dim dbComboDA As New OleDbDataAdapter(dbComboCommand)
Dim Cds As New DataSet()
dbComboDA.Fill(Cds, "results")

comboboxColumn.DataSource = Cds.Tables[0]
comboboxColumn.ValueMember = "title"
comboboxColumn.DisplayMember = comboboxColumn.ValueMember

dataGridView1.Columns.Insert(1, comboboxColumn)
