I have two tables similar to this

EmployeeID    EmployeeName TitleCode
1                     Mustafa  1
2                     Ahmed                 2
3                     Mikel                         1
4                     Suzan                       2

Title Code  Title                    
1                Supervisor   
2                Manager 

I'm using radGridView.
what I would like to do is how to display in the grid view with this layout:
EmployeeID    EmployeeName      Title
1                     Mustafa        Supervisor          
2                     Ahmed               Manager 
3                     Mikel                       Supervisor          
4                     Suzan                     Manager 

When I was using VS gridview I as doing :
1- gridview->datasource = employees table
2- then I was selecting the gridview -> rightclick -> edit columns ->then i was chaging the column type propertyo of the required column (in this case the title code )to DataGridViewComboBoxColumn then 
Datasource: Titles table
Display Memeber: title column
Value Memeber: titlecolde 
DataPropertyName:title code in the employees table.

Any help please??

Hello Mustafa,

Thank you for contacting us.

This is a very common scenario and you can easily achieve it by using GridViewComboBoxColumn. Please, find detailed description in our help section. Also you can take a look in the Column Types sample in the Telerik's example application.

Do not hesitate to contact me again if you have other questions.
