Navigation solution for mass edit


   We've been trying to use the DataGridRow to provide a way for our users to edit data in mass.
   We'd like them to always view the current as in edit mode and with the whole content selected when it gets the focus.
   So far, we've used ActivateCurrentCellBehavior=SelectAll on the DataGridControl but it seems it only works when the user click on a cell with the mouse. We'd like this to be the case even when the user navigate with the keyboard (TAB, SHIFT-TAB, ENTER). This seems to only change the current cell without triggering the edit mode. We couldn't find a way to it programatically when the current cell is activated.

   What options do we have?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Martin,

 We are sorry for delay caused,

 We have analyzed your query. You can activate the current cell by using CurrentCell.Activate() method. Please refer the below code snippet.

 Code snippet[C#]:

this.SyncGrid.CurrentCellMoved += SyncGrid_CurrentCellMoved;


void SyncGrid_CurrentCellMoved(object sender, GridCurrentCellMovedEventArgs args)


 var data=(sender as GridDataControl).Model.CurrencyManager.CurrentCell.CellRowColumnIndex;

 this.SyncGrid.Model.CurrencyManager.CurrentCell.Activate(data.RowIndex, data.ColumnIndex);




Please let us know if you have any queries,
