How can I add a combo box column to an asp.net gridview control using vb.net?  I have the code that adds a column that's bound but how do I make it combo boxes?


Try '...add column

            grdOSS0.AutoGenerateColumns = False

            Dim Field As New BoundField

            Field.DataField = "part"

            Field.HeaderText = "Part"

            Dim Col As DataControlField = Field

            grdOSS0.Columns.Add(Col)

            grdOSS0.DataBind()

        Catch ex As Exception
 

        End Try
