No, still watching for a solution, if problem there be.
Just a thought here...
Could it be that the Parent props are getting confused when you embed the
LC in the grid? The dropdown is a TIB_CustomGrid and its parent (when not
embedded) would be the LC itself. Can you check out your DFM file (View as
Text) after embedding and see if and how the parentage is
affected? Compare that with the sample and see if there is any
difference...maybe you need to disable the ParentColor and ParentFontColor
(or equiv. props) of the dropdown *before* you embed the control.
