Instead of one of the existing column types I would like to have a user
control appear in a cell in a gridview.

What I have done is created a control
CCTest : Control, IDataGridViewEditingControl
inherits from Control, and implements IDataGridViewEditingControl

I then create a cell class
TestCell : DataGridViewCell

in here I override public override void InitializeEditingControl(int
rowIndex, object
initialFormattedValue, DataGridViewCellStyle

to set the editing control for the cell.

these get used in a column I create and add to the datagridview.

The problem I have is that I want the editing control to be the control that
appears when the user first opens the form.

In my test cell class I overrode Paint to do this.
In here I create an instance of the custom control I want to appear.
Then I use.
tst.DrawToBitmap(bmp,new Rectangle(0,0,90,90));
graphics.DrawImage(bmp, cellBounds);
where tst is the instance of the control I created.

This works. However I was just curious as to if anyone has a better way to
do this.
I'm not really a fan of the solution I came up with.

Thanks in advance
