Disable horizontal auto scroll


     I have a grid control with lots of columns. If I scroll horizontally to see the columns that are out of view on the right and then double click to edit a cell, the grid auto scrolls to the first editable cell in the row. 

Is there a way to prevent this behaviour and to set focus to the clicked cell (or nearest editable cell) instead ?

Thanks for your help.

Hi Gary, 
We have analyzed your query and we suggest you to use JavaScript dblClick event to achieve your requirement. In the event, we can get the clicked td element and we add the focus to that cell by its column index. Please find the below sample for your reference.  
  var grid = document.getElementById("Grid");   
    grid.addEventListener("dblclick", cellSelect);  
    function cellSelect(event) {   
        var colIndex = event.target.getAttribute("aria-colindex");   
Please get back to us for further assistance.

Thanks for your help. It works great (with a slight tweak to subtract the number of frozen columns from colindex).
