Drop down the combobox on Enter Key

Hi, how can I convert the following code for the WinForms GridControl, to the WPF GridControl?
I can't find a find of over-riding the Enter key behaviour, or to programmatically drop down the combobox.

    'Key event customization
    Private Sub gridControl1_KeyDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As KeyEventArgs)
        Dim currentCell As GridCurrentCell = GridControl1.CurrentCell
        Dim info As GridStyleInfo = GridControl1.Model(currentCell.RowIndex, currentCell.ColIndex)

        'Activate the enter key for combobox
        If e.KeyCode = Keys.Enter AndAlso info.CellType Is "ComboBox" Then
            e.Handled = True
            If Not currentCell.IsDroppedDown Then
            End If
        End If           

    End Sub

Kind Regards
