Lookup Dialogue in Grid

Is it possible to open a window as a lookup from a text field in a grid cell. For instance, I would like to be able to either type a value in a cell or pop a window that allows me to search and select the value I want to put in the cell. Has anyone done this?

You can open dhtmlxWindow when you click on necessary cell in grid. docs.dhtmlx.com/doku.php?id=dhtmlxwindows:toc

Thanks for the reply. Is it possible to place a lookup icon in the cell and only have the window pop up when they click that icon? I saw somewhere that it’s possible to place html controls in a cell. Would it be possible to place a textbox and a button next to the box to achieve this, or is there a more elegant solution? I am wanting the data in the cell to be stored in a SQL database.

The most elegant way to do this is to create custom eXcell type. You can create readonly cell, catch “onclick” event and show dhtmlxWindow. Please find more information here docs.dhtmlx.com/doku.php?id=dhtm … l_creation
