private static void SetAlternateChoicesUsingItems(
    DataGridViewComboBoxColumn comboboxColumn)
    comboboxColumn.Items.AddRange("Mr.", "Ms.", "Mrs.", "Dr.");

private DataGridViewComboBoxColumn CreateComboBoxColumn()
    DataGridViewComboBoxColumn column =
        new DataGridViewComboBoxColumn();
        column.DataPropertyName = ColumnName.TitleOfCourtesy.ToString();
        column.HeaderText = ColumnName.TitleOfCourtesy.ToString();
        column.DropDownWidth = 160;
        column.Width = 90;
        column.MaxDropDownItems = 3;
        column.FlatStyle = FlatStyle.Flat;
