Can u create a combo box in the detail section of a master\detail form

Can u create a combo box in the detail section of a master\detail form

Can u create a combo box in the detail section of a master\detail form

(OP)
I'm trying to re-write an Access database in FoxPro. My last obsticle is to be able to create a combo list within the grid. I have a master\detail form in Access that has combo lists in the detail part of the form. I have been looking for a way to be able to create combo lists in the detail part of my form from FoxPro but, am having no luck.

Is it possible to do this in FoxPro?

RE: Can u create a combo box in the detail section of a master\detail form

Yes, Rahel, its possible, just not obvious.

Right-click the grid and choose Edit (assuming you already have a RecordSource set).

From the toolbar, click the combobox control and then click in the desired column. If you did it right, it will look like nothing happened.

From the properties of that Column, move to the CurrentControl property and select the name of the combo (i.e. "combo1") you just added.

You didn't ask, but: you can set the column's Sparse property to set whether you want the combobox to be displayed in the entire column, or only in the active cell.
