Asked On April 10, 2017 10:03 AM UTC

I would like to ask the below
1) If you want to write in a editable cell must make two clicks. There is the possibility this is done with one click?

2) The cursor behavior SelectAll works for GridTextColumn and no for GridNumericColumn. Why?

3) The editable SfDataGrid for Xamarin.Android when it will be released?

Hi Giorgos,

Thanks for using Syncfusion products.

1.     You can enter the edit mode in a single click by setting the SfDataGrid.EditTapAction properly as OnTap. Please refer the below code snippet. 
sfGrid.EditTapAction = TapAction.OnTap; 

            For more information regarding editing in SfDataGrid please refer the below UG link.

      2. We have used the SfNumericTextBox control for rendering the SfNumericColumn in edit mode. Currently the SfNumericTextBox control does not provide the SelectAll behavior. This requirement has been forwarded to the SfNumericTextBox team internally and a feature request has been logged for the same and you can expect the feature to be available in any of our upcoming releases post 2017 Volume 2 Main Release.
3.     The SfDataGrid for Xamarin.Android and Xamarin.iOS platforms will include the editing feature in the 2017 Volume 2 Main Release scheduled for roll out in the last week of April 2017.

Hi Giorgos, 
Regarding your SelectAll cursor behavior not works in GridNumericColumn query, 
As we said earlier, we have used SfNumericTextBox control for rendering GridNumericColumn in SfDataGrid and the SfNumericTextBox control does not have SelectAllBehavior. Now the concerned team has logged a feature report regarding the SelectAllBehavior support in SfNumericTextBox as tentative and the same will be available from any of our upcoming releases. Since the feature is tentative, we can’t able to provide the exact timeline for this feature. Please check our websites periodically to know the list of implemented features.
