Hi, I''ve noticed a couple of behaviours in the CurrentCellValidateString which I didn''t expect. Could you please tell me whether the current behaviour is correct. 1. When backspace is pressed the CurrentCellValidateString e.Text includes a ''\b'' where the backspace is pressed. Do I need to process the string for these special characters? 2. When delete key is pressed, the CurrentCellValidateString is not fired. 3. When I paste into the cell, the CurrentCellValidateString is fired twice, the second time including a special character (looks like a square in the watch window) 4. Likewise with Cut and Copy. I had thought that I could use this event to validate the text value of the cell, but I''m not getting that value. Is this the expected use? And if so, how do I get the correct text value to validate. Thanks, Sue

This does not seem to be working properly. I have forwarded it to the grid architect so he can decide what to do about it. As a work around, I think you can catch a couple of events on the enbedded textbox in the cell, and do the validation you want there. Here is a rough try at this. forum12072_5526.zip
