The below code creates a column in a datagridview control in visual studio 2012 using vb.net.  The column does not respond to being clicked?  Is there additional code to have the column respond to being clicked?

            Dim cmb As New DataGridViewComboBoxColumn()
            cmb.HeaderText = "aSelectData"
            cmb.Name = "cmb"
            cmb.MaxDropDownItems = 2
            cmb.Items.Add("True")
            cmb.Items.Add("False")
            DataGridView1.Columns.Add(cmb)

Set the IsPostBack property to True on DataGridView in page_load and try it.

Did you set the Enabled property of the DataGridView to True?

There is a reaction when you click on a DataGridViewComboBoxColumn. It might simply be that this is not the one that you expect.

The first click selects the cell.
A second one triggers the dropdown.

This makes sense. Users might want to simply click in the row without necessarily seeing the content of the list. Or they might simply want to copy and paste the information that is there.

Maybe you would prefer it to open on the first click, but other users would find it annoying. In my opinion, same as for any application, it's simply question of know it and it becomes an habit.

This is a common mechanism in Windows. In Windows Explorer, a first click on a file name selects it, a second one triggers a rename.
