What version of our library are you using? This is not default behavior. Can you tell me how to reproduce this problem in one of our samples? Or, can you upload a sample showing the problem? What kind of grid are you using? What events are you handling? Is any cells or columns set to be readonly or have Enabled=false set?

The reason that delete is behaving this way is due to the fact that delete is a shortcut key for one of your menu items. Shortcut keys commands take precedence over a active control handling the key. If you comment out this line in the designer generated code, this.brItmDel.Shortcut = System.Windows.Forms.Shortcut.Del; then delete will delete the selected text in an active cell with a "TextBox" celltype.
