Make a lookup combo

    I have a spread bound to a datasource. How do I make a column having a combobox which would serve as a lookup for values from another table from the same datasource.

    And, why the Items property for  ComboBoxCellType is of type string[] and not as ObjectCollection as it is done for any combobox in .NET?
    By having string[] I can't fill with my own type of objects, which is TOO bad.

    Thx for any help.

    With version 3 of Spread for WIndows Forms, we have a new combobox celltype (MultiColumnComboboxCellType) which can have the list bound to a DataSource and have the DataFields of the bound DataSource as non string fields.
