Sorry David, I'm not following you :(
The standard .NET 2.0 DataGridView has a specific DataGridViewLinkColumn column type that you can select when defining the columns (outside of DevForce). I can get the DataGridView to show the column as hyperlinks by selecting the .NET DataGridViewLinkColumn type in the Visual Studio columns editor.
The problem is that if I try to use the DataGridViewBindingManager to manage the bindings can't set the column type to DataGridViewLinkColumn as I would do outside of DevForce. It doesn't give me that option for that column type in the control type drop down.
Incidently I can sort of get what I want by changing the column type DataGridViewLinkColumn in the VS column editor after i've added it with the DGVBM which looks right at design time but at run-time of course the DGVBM thinks the column is missing so adds a second column as textbox column, so I get duplicate columns - one with the link as I want it and one with the column as a textbox.
I guess the problem is that according to the msdn documentation the DataGridViewLinkColumn actually behaves more like a button than texbox. When viewed from that perspective it makes a little more sense why DevForce doesn't offer it as bindable column type (you wouldn't ordinarily bind a button to anything), but still since it is possible to bind to it when not using the DataGridViewBindingManager it would be nice if we could do it with DevForce too.
Thanks for your help, and your quick responses.
