    i have a full screen app and when the user is in a spreadrow at the bottom of the application the dropdown box drops down out of sight, can i specify that it should drop "up" from the active cell, or otherwise control where it displays?

    Russ -

    I do not see a way to do this but I think there should be.  I will bring this to the attention of the development team.

    By default, the Spread should be calculating the rectangle the dropdown will be displayed and if it will be off the screen (below), it should automatically display above the Spread cell. What release of Spread for Windows Forms are you using?

     I see now, you are using the MultiColumnComboboxCellType and this does not have the same behavior. Bob has reported this as a bug for the development team to research a fix for the next maintenance release.
