Multi-column combobox in datagrid

Submitted by: 
Visitors have accessed this post 45386 times.

Here's another version of lynxgrid that I have developed. But by this time I have added a multi-column combobox.

The primary purpose of this code is to learn how to integrate combobox and other control like datepicker, checkbox, etc. in lynxgrid. You will also learn in different way on how to save using a master/detail form. How to delete record in table which was deleted in lynxgrid control.

Note: I'm using the term combobox instead of datacombo or something else which I'm actually using in this code because combobox in datagrid is most common term.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. After downloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.

Virus note: All files are scanned once-a-day by for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them.


1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

I am trying to create a system with combo box. The combo box is bound to a table. The data on the table is id and description. I have displayed in the combo box the description but on save I want to have the id associated with the description to be saved.

Hi can I ask how to connect data grid to mysql and what are the code pls...

MySQL works similar from other data sources.

  1. Private Sub Form_Load()
  2. Dim Customers As New ADODB.Recordset
  4. Set Customers = New ADODB.Recordset
  6. Customers.cursorlocation = AdUseClient
  7. Customers.Open "SELECT * from Customers", Con, adOpenKeyset, adLockPessimistic
  9. Set DataGrid1.DataSource = dept
  10. End Sub

You have to declare Con variable before loading the form.
