Is it possible to display a diffrent value in combo , than t

Let’s say i have these values in the combo (of a grid) :



Ana

Maria

Veronica

Lucretia



…and I select Maria. Is it possible for the cell to display “M”,after the selection is made?

Technically it can be done by modification of setValue method of related excell.
dhtmlxgridcell.js , line 1048
eXcell_co.prototype.setValue=function(val){

this.setCValue((this.cell._combo||this.grid.getCombo(this.cell._cellIndex)).get(val)||val, val);

can be changed as

this.setCValue(((this.cell._combo||this.grid.getCombo(this.cell._cellIndex)).get(val)||val).substr(0,1), val);
