GridComboBoxColumn takes 3 clicks to open the dropdown


After adding a GridComboBoxColumn to my datagrid, I've noticed that it takes at least 5 clicks to open the dropdown. The first click focus the row and then a double click is required to pop the combobox open. It's almost impossible to get it to open by tapping. Is there some setting that controls this? I'd like a single tap on the combobox, regardless of what currently has focus, to open the dropdown. Is this possible?

Thanks and regards,

Following up, I noticed the GridComboBoxColumn.AllowFocus property was set to True. I tried setting this to False, but now I can't get any of the dropdowns to appear at all. So it looks like AllowEdit = true is overridden by AllowFocus = false. Any ideas?
