I''m having an active cell issue when a GDBG has a controls other then a Textbox. I have a CellClick event handler so I can perform validation before fields can be edited. In the event handler I am doing the following:

GridDataBoundGrid grid = (GridDataBoundGrid) sender;
GridModelDataBinder binder = grid.Binder;
GridCurrentCell cc = grid.CurrentCell;
int colIndex = grid.CurrentCell.ColIndex;
int rowIndex = grid.CurrentCell.RowIndex;
int field = binder.ColIndexToField(colIndex);
GridBoundColumn column = binder.InternalColumns[field];
string colName = column.MappingName;

It appears the MonthCalendar CellType does not become active (The cell I was last on is returned), when the eventhandler fires, unless I select the cell by tabbing to it first. A checkbox celltype has the same issue.

If you set the property ActivateCurrentCellBehavior to ClickOnCell then the cell gets activated after clicking on it. If you click the dropdown button of the cell ( like ComboBox button , MonthCalender button , push button ,etc), it doesn''t activate the cell in a grid. To activate the current cell in checkbox click/cellclick event , you need to use the CurrentCell.MoveTo method.


If you want to validate the cell in a gird, you can handle the validating event. Please refer the below link for more details.
