Is there a way to capture the cell clicked to enter edit mode and set the focus on that cell.  Currently a user clicks the row(cell) to go to edit mode and the cursor is in the first available edit field I believe I read this is as designed.  But I need to be able to place the cursor on the field (cell) they clicked on to get to edit mode.  Is this possible?

Hi Sybil, 
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support. 
Query#:- But I need to be able to place the cursor on the field (cell) they clicked on to get to edit mode. 
We have validated your query and achieved your requirement by “focusing the clicked column on editing” using ActionComplete and RecordDoubleClick events of ejGrid. We have retrieved the clicked cell index through getColumnByIndex in RecordDoubleClick event of the Grid. In the ActionComplete event of the Grid, we have focused the target cell. 
Please refer to the code example:- 
<ej:Grid ID="Grid" runat="server"> 
         <ClientSideEvents ActionComplete="Complete" RecordDoubleClick="click" /> 
    var index; 
       function complete(args){ 
         if (args.requestType == "beginedit") { 
            var column = this.getColumnByIndex(index);                    
            $("#" + this._id + column.field).parent().find("input").focus().select();  //find the input element and focus    
       function click(args) {   
        index = args.cellIndex;   //find the target index 
Refer to the documentation Link 
Please get back to us if you need any further assistance. 
Vignesh Natarajan.
