The first key / character is lost when entering it into a cell

You must be typing into a cell which has an image. You then must click in the cell to get the cursor blinking. The first character you type clears the image, and the text of the cell is empty. If you do not have a cursor blinking in the cell when the image is in it, then it will not clear the cell''s text, and your first character will remain in the cell (and the image will be cleared). This can be done by using the arrow keys to move to the cell. Here is the code which clears out the image: this.gridControl.CurrentCellValidateString += new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridCurrentCellValidateStringEventHandler(this.gridControl_CurrentCellValidateString); // ... code ... private void gridControl_CurrentCellValidateString(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridCurrentCellValidateStringEventArgs e) { GridStyleInfo cellStyle = gridControl[gridControl.CurrentCell.RowIndex, gridControl.CurrentCell.ColIndex]; if (cellStyle.ImageIndex != -1 && cellStyle.ImageIndex != (int)StateIcons.ReadOnly) { cellStyle.ImageIndex = -1; } } Thanks for any assistance with this dissapearing first character.

Attached is a sample that implements the behavior I think you want by handling CurrentCellStartEditing and CurrentCellDeactivated without losing the first keystroke. 9848-1_2307.zip
