MultiExtended and Enter edit mode

We are working on a project that would require full rows to be selected and use of ctrl and shift. This is easy through gridControl1.ListBoxSelectionMode = SelectionMode.MultiExtended; However, we also only want to enter edit mode only if the user clicks on a currently selected row''s cell. IE, the first click on a cell will select the entire row, the second click on the cell will make it editable. Currently we have the grid set up as gridControl1.ActivateCurrentCellBehavior = GridCellActivateAction.SetCurrent; Better option? What is the proper strategy for accomplishing this?

I think you can do this by: 1) Adding member to your form: GridRangeInfoList rangeList; 2) in FormLoad: this.grid.ActivateCurrentCellBehavior = GridCellActivateAction.None; rangeList = this.grid.Selections.GetSelectedRows(false, true).Clone(); 3) Handle the grid''s MouseUp eevnt and save the selections. private void grid_MouseUp(object sender, MouseEventArgs e) { rangeList = this.grid.Selections.GetSelectedRows(true, false).Clone(); } 4) handle the grid''s MouseDown and start editing if the cell is in the saved selections.
private void grid_MouseDown(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
	int row, col;
	if(rangeList.Count > 0 && 
		this.grid.PointToRowCol(new Point(e.X, e.Y), out row, out col, -1))
		if(rangeList.AnyRangeContains(GridRangeInfo.Cell(row, col)))
