I’m trying to use a CExtGridCellComboBox in a Property Grid and am having a problem detecting a change in the selection of an item. I’m using the CExtPropertyItem Apply() method to capture changes in my grid. This works fine for string based items but not for the combo box. The Apply method never gets called.

I’ve verified this with the Property Grid Sample supplied with Prof-UIS. Looking at the Animation combo box in the sample when you make a selection the Apply method doesn’t get called to make the change effective. You have to select another item, then click back in the Animation item (not calling the combo box), then select another item. This is the only way the Apply method gets called.

Can this behavior be changed to function as intended? Have the Apply method called once a selection in the combo box is made. Also can this be made to function when the item is set so that no inplace edit control is used. I want the item to function as a drop list. And not allow users to type in changes.
