every thing I read, it says to go to the datagridview properties
listbox details and add a listbox

I can find no such property.

using visual studio 2010.
made all of the columns, want the second column to have a dropdown list with three words in it.
do I have to add something to the project or to the properties or make my own datagrid with this type of property?
thanks gary

There is no ListBox In datagridview ..You can Add a ComboBox Column instead..and change ComboBox Dipslay style...

In the DatagridView Tasks select your ComboBox Column in the Data Section You Will see "Items" ..There you can add Line by line whatever you want....

BTW how you populate your dategridview....Did you create it Dynamically or Draged to the form from a dataset?

actually it is blank.  the datagrid will fill in with a row for everyday of the current month. if then if there are no matching dates from a sql search of the database the user can fill in information for each day.  If there are already days filled in for the month they will then populate the datagrid and the user will fill in any missing day's information.

Funny things is that when I looked on multiple programing sites they all mention using the list box, some even have pictures of using it but they all claim there is a listbox bind in the property box.

will try the item list.

Here is a sample

Also could you give an example for that you say
"looked on multiple programing sites they all mention using the list box.....
maybe these are 'third Party components..

You are right, places I was looking showed picture from the above codeproject and I just made an assumption that I was doing something wrong.

Your solution works great, I just had never used the control before and didn't drop the listbox down for the column.

thanks
