How do I allow user to select single cell instead of a row

I am creating a grid like treeview, using liststore as the model. So, I
set the row to the grid row and each col to the grid column. So, I can
easily get the cell(row, col) using hte listore.

After showing the treeview, I found that I can’t allow the user to
select single cell, they only allow to select single row. How can I
change this behaviour? I already try all the Treeview#selection mode but
neither meet my requirement.

I am thinking to use the treestore and map the row to a parent and all
the column to a child. But I still have problem on showing its
appearance as a gridview.

Can anyone help me on this? I just want to make a simple grid view but
It seems really hard to do using GTK. I can done it easily with the C#
GridView but not on this Gtk. May be WxRuby is easier to draw a grid
view?

The fundamental problem is GtkTreeView does not support grid
selection. This is why programs like Gnumeric, etc implement their own
custom grid widget. It’s one of the most requested missing
widget/feature in gtk+, IMHO.
