Display a Label when Data Grid Column is not selected and a Combo Box when Selected RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to display a label text in a cell when the row of the data grid is not selected and to display a combo box in the same cell when the row is selected?

    I have been looking at the implementations for DataGridViewComboBox but it will display a Combo Box all the time. I just want to display a label when the row is not selected.

    Any ideas or suggestions would be helpful.

  • Hi,

    One workaround is to create a custom usercontrol and host it in datagridview. For more info, you can refer to the document How to: Host Controls in Windows Forms DataGridView Cells.
