Manually setting cursor/caret postion.

Hi I''ve got a problem where I am manually calling .BeginEdit on a cell to get it into edit mode, but I need to specify where the user starts typing within the cell text by specifying the caret position. Any ideas how I can go about this? Thanks Martin

One way you can do this is to get the renderer for the currentcell, and then if it is a textbox, set the SelectionStart and Selection.Len. Here is a snippet that positions the cursor at the end of the text in CurrentCellStartEditing.
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;
