I want about DataGrid not DataGridView...
System.Windows.Fowms.DataGrid
i knw about DataGridView But I didnt use DataGrid..
   
I asked it this is the whole column (same type in a column or not).
Anyway, I answered on how to do it, please see.

Tnkx 4 help...
   
Oh, DataGrid? Sorry, I did not pay attention, because — who uses System.Windows.Forms.DataGrid, ever?

OK, here is a simple advice: never use DataGrid, use newer and much better DataGridView, which supersedes DataGrid.
Honestly, please follow this advice, to stay out of trouble...

Solution 1

If this is a whole column, please see: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.forms.datagridviewcomboboxcolumn.aspx[^].

For an individual cell, you can create a cell instance of appropriate type:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.forms.datagridviewcomboboxcell.aspx[^].

Then you need to replace some cell of a grid view with a newly created cell.

This is discussed, for example, here: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/winformsdesigner/thread/63ddb457-f769-44db-87cc-9e88e74929e8[^].
