Hi,

I have added a TypeConverter to my ComboBox column which converts from string to Value which will allow me to paste either the Int Value or the String Value into the Combobox. This is  all working fine.

What I would like to know is it possible to copy out the string Value using this, Or would I have to use an other method to do this.

In thought if I used ComboboxCell.Value.ToString() then it would convert the value to the String Version but it doesnt.

Thanks 

David

Hi David,

You should get the display value by invoking the GetLookupValue method of GridViewComboBoxColumn:

GridViewComboBoxColumn comboBoxColumn = ComboboxCell.ColumnInfo as GridViewComboBoxColumn;
string displayValue= comboBoxColumn.GetLookupValue(ComboboxCell.Value).ToString();

I hope this helps.
