    • I think the easiest way for this is to load the xml first in datatable, then after made some changes on the metrogrid, write the xml using datatable

    • Scrollbar will automatically be displayed when your mouse is at the side or bottom of the grid.

        Thanks Sir, It works, another question, This code works on default datagridview to autosize colums in datagrid //dataGridView1.AutoSizeColumnsMode = DataGridViewAutoSizeColumnsMode.DisplayedCells; how to do it in your metrogrid? so that i wont resize the columns everytime I’ll view the table, Thanks!

          And also how do you filter data using metrogrid itself? I want to do the filter like yours, to avoid using comboxes and textboxes for filtering.

          • Actually this is one is made using C1Flexgrid that is why there is default filtering. For default MetroGrid it is not available.

        • It should work just like with default DataGrid. MetroGrid was inherited from default DataGrid

            Hello Dennis,

            //It should work just like with default DataGrid.

            It means we can use same as VS Data grid and also can change text to combobox column or checkbox column right? Please let me know. I’m struggling in this area.

            Hi Dennis,

            I found it is same as VS default grid( as you said). I worked on it.
            I have another question. I can i increase the combobox height. ie. How I see at-least 5 values. now I can view only 2 values then i need to scroll down to view next values.How can I achieve this?

            If any others looking for combobox sample . here is it.

            With MGrid

            .ColumnCount = 3

            .RowHeadersVisible = False

            .AutoSizeRowsMode = DataGridViewAutoSizeRowsMode.None

            .AllowUserToResizeRows = False

            .CellBorderStyle = DataGridViewCellBorderStyle.Raised

            .RowHeadersBorderStyle = DataGridViewHeaderBorderStyle.Single

            .ColumnHeadersBorderStyle = DataGridViewHeaderBorderStyle.Single

            .Columns(0).Name = “ID”

            .Columns(0).Width = 100

            .Columns(1).Name = “Name”

            .Columns(1).Width = 200

            Dim cmb As New DataGridViewComboBoxColumn()

            cmb.HeaderText = “Subject”

            cmb.Name = “cmb”

            cmb.FlatStyle = FlatStyle.Flat

            cmb.MaxDropDownItems = 2

            cmb.Width = 200







            .Columns.Insert(2, cmb)

            .Columns(3).Name = “Class”

            .Columns(3).Width = 100

            End With
