When I have entered text in a cell and press F2, the cells enters in editing mode, but the caret is at the beginning of the text. How can I send the caret to the end of the text? Thanks.

One way you can do this is to handle the CurrentCellStartEditing event and explicitly set the cursor position in the textbox.
private void gridControl1_CurrentCellStartEditing(object sender, System.ComponentModel.CancelEventArgs e)
	GridTextBoxCellRenderer tbr = this.gridControl1.CurrentCell.Renderer as GridTextBoxCellRenderer;
	if(tbr != null)
		tbr.TextBox.SelectionStart = tbr.TextBox.Text.Length;
		tbr.TextBox.SelectionLength = 0;

I have a related problem. What I need is for when the user clicks on the cell, the caret position is in the text at the same place where the user clicked. How would I go about doing this? thx.

Try setting this property to see if it gives you what you want. this.grid.ActivateCurrentCellBehavior = GridCellActivateAction.PositionCaret
