    Assume I only want to add a combo box editor to the cell located in the second row, second column of a gridview control.  Am I able to do this?  If so, what code would I use for this?  All of the other cells in this control will have a text edit box editor.

    Hi James,

    Thank you for writing.

    A convenient event for replacing the default editor with a custom one is the EditorRequired event of RadGridView. Here is a sample snippet:
    void radGridView1_EditorRequired(object sender, EditorRequiredEventArgs e)
        if (radGridView1.CurrentCell.RowIndex == 1 && radGridView1.CurrentCell.ColumnIndex == 1)
            e.Editor = new RadDropDownListEditor();

    More information regarding editors in RadGridView can be found in the following help section:

    I hope that you find the provided information useful.
