How would I bind the DataRowView from the MultiColumnComboBoxCellType to the current Spread row

    Hello all,


    We're using a MultiColumnComboBox celltype on a given column. Once the user has selected a value in the MultiColumnCombo, there are several associated cells in the current spread row that can be updated from the MultiColumnCombo. For purposes of discussion, let's say that ColA, ColB and ColC from the MultiColumnCombo map to Col2, Col4 and Col6 on the parent sheet and that the MultiColumnCombo is assigned to Col2 on the parent sheet. Can I use a binding manager or currency manager to bind these columns so that I don't have to iterate them every time a user makes a selection? Thanks in advance for any ideas and/or suggestions!

    Hello,


    This is not possible in the current build since the editor (and SubEditor) aer destroyed and recreated each time you go in and out of editmode. Even when we correct this to reuse the Editor, I do not see an easy way to set this up. I know how to bind simple textboxes to cells, but you are wanting to bind a list. It is probably easier to use the code you have already for getting the selection from the ComboCloseUp event and get the values from the selected row programatically to fill the other cells.
