But what I want is a combo box that can be used to drop down and select or to type a value in the cell using the keyboard.Therefore I was looking for something like property 'Drop Down Style' but that property is not available for the Data Grid View Combo Box Cell! n) to the column name of the table, then grid shall expect that value being fetched from table is present in the combo box drop down.I am programming 3 combo boxes so that each one feeds off the information from the previous combobox.

Add a label control that would display the selected item. Text = "tutorialspont.com" End Sub 'sends the selected items to the list box Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As Event Args) Handles Button1.

In one of our applications we connect a database as a data source directly to a datagridview in VB. Using this technique it is possible for our users to edit the data directly in the cell. For some of the cells, however, the value should be chosen from a number of fixed values. What we want is that in the data grid view for that cell a combo box is presented so the user must select a value from a set of fixed values. It is important that the performance remains good, as it is a database with many records!
Since you are directly binding the data grid to data source, you will have to Set auto-generate columns to false for the datagridview and add the columns manually.
In the next step, you may set properties of a Combo Box control.
The following code snippet sets location, width, height, background color, foreground color, Text, Name, and Font properties of a Combo Box. Add method that adds Combo Box control to the Form controls and displays on the Form based on the location and size of the control.
