    Hi all,
    I don't know how to bind data to comboboxes columns in gridview control.
    I'm using this to bind data to grid view:
    private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
                model = new DataModel.Entities();
                dataSource = new BindingSource();
                dataSource.DataSource = model.Items.ToList();
                radGridView1.DataSource = dataSource;

    Two of data field are foreign keys to another table. I would like to bind data from another table to my combo box editor.
    To get data from database I'm using OpenAccess ORM for PostgreSQL.

    Hello Maciek,

    Thank you for writing.

    Please, refer to the online documentation regarding the GridViewComboBoxColumn. There you will find examples how to populate the column and how to work with it.

    On a side note, when you assign a data source to RadGridView, you do not need to call the begin/end update methods, as they are called internally.

    I hope this will be useful. Should you have further questions, I would be glad to help.
