How to focus filter in GridDataControl

Simple application, which shows list of items. Each column have filter cell (by ShowFilterBar="True") - how to put focus on filter cell? 

I mean - I've run application and it is already prepared for filtering - no need additional mouse click to go to filter cell. How to focus one of the filter cells?

Sorry for my english

Hi Viktoras,
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support
We have analyzed your query. You can achieve your requirement to set the focus on filter cell by setting the currentcell as like in the below code example.

void dataGrid_Loaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)


     this.dataGrid.Dispatcher.BeginInvoke(new Action(()=>


         this.dataGrid.Model.CurrencyManager.CurrentCell.MoveTo(1, 2);               




We have also prepared the sample based on this and you can download the sample from the below location,

Thank you for replay. My bad - i'm not enough clearly described the problem. I'm not need to EDIT cell. First cell in attached picture is a FILTER. I want to focus a filter cell. Top row on a picture - is a filter. I mean if i'll enter text in this cell - filtered all content of grid. I start typing "A" - in grid just all rows containing "A". etc. 

How do i focus FILTER cell?
