The following code example demonstrates how to use a DataGridViewComboBoxColumn to aid in entering data into the TitleOfCourtesy column. This example is part of a larger example available in the DataGridViewComboBoxColumn class overview topic.


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;
    }
    return column;
}
