Hello, I am trying to achieve the behavior similar to what you see in many web sites. When you select one row, all the editable columns exibihit theirs controls and you can change all if you want.

What my users want is a behavior similar to this, because this quickly shows the users what is the selected line and what columns they are able to change. 

Currently, if I enable my users to select the whole line. All the cells in the line get highlighted but only the current cell becomes editable.

Then I changed to selection mode to cell and activated the .TableModel.Options.ShowCurrentCellBorderBehavior = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridShowCurrentCellBorder.AlwaysVisible for them to see a border around the cell they are editing.

As the registers in grid keeps growing, the selected line becomes really dificult to see.

Find attached some examples of the behavior I want.

I want some help with which properties should I set and which events should I respond to to get this.
