excel-like cell activation

I am trying to get an excel-like cell activation behavior for cell with textbox editing--single click lt mouse button activates cell, but no insert caret, dbl-click activates cell and puts insert caret at mouse position. Setting Grid.ActivateCurrentCellBehavior = GridCellActivateAction.DblClickOnCell gets close, but when user Dbl clicks, the insert caret is not positioned where the mouse is.

There is no property setting for this. I think you can get this behavior using an event and a timer.
//in form.load
this.gridControl1.CellDoubleClick += new GridCellClickEventHandler(gridControl1_CellDoubleClick);
this.gridControl1.ActivateCurrentCellBehavior = GridCellActivateAction.DblClickOnCell;

private Timer t = null; 
private void gridControl1_CellDoubleClick(object sender, GridCellClickEventArgs e)
	if(this.t == null)
		this.t = new Timer();
		this.t.Interval = 10;
		this.t.Tick += new EventHandler(t_Tick);

private void t_Tick(object sender, EventArgs e)
	GridTextBoxCellRenderer cr = this.gridControl1.CurrentCell.Renderer as GridTextBoxCellRenderer;
	if(cr.TextBox != null)
		Point pt = cr.TextBox.PointToClient(Control.MousePosition);
		Syncfusion.Drawing.ActiveXSnapshot.FakeLeftMouseClick(cr.TextBox, pt);

Works great. Many thanks. >There is no property setting for this. > >I think you can get this behavior using an event and a timer.
