Asked On August 18, 2003 06:02 AM UTC

I have a grid where only a couple of the cells are editable. When I press ENTER in these cells the grid automatically moves focus/currentcell to the next editable cell in the row. Is there any way I can turn off this behaviour or even better, catch the 'move' event and move focus to a celll of my choice? Sincerly Soren Enemaerke

There is both a property and an event. The property is EnterKeyBehavior. Here is a setting that turns off any action by the enter key. this.gridControl1.EnterKeyBehavior = GridDirectionType.None; The event is QueryNextCurrentCellPosition. Here is code that will move you to 1,1 anytime you try to tab into cell 3,3.
private void grid_QueryNextCurrentCellPosition(object sender, GridQueryNextCurrentCellPositionEventArgs e)
	if(e.ColIndex == 3 && e.RowIndex == 3)
		e.ColIndex = 1;
		e.RowIndex = 1;
		e.Handled = true;
		e.Result = true;
