Combobox cell losing focus

I'm using a grid grouping grid.
One of the cells in my grid is a combobox cell.
I set its type and properties in QueryCellStyleInfo.

When I type something into the cell, and hit enter to autocomplete, the combobox control loses focus. Focus stays in the cell, but i can no longer enter values.

Does anyone have a solution to this issue?

Hi Nikesh,

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion products.

The grid cell with cell type set at runtime can have two different focus. One is with renderer and the other is with grid cell. Once you type in the combo textbox, the cell renderer sets the value according to the typed text. Once the "Enter" key is pressed, the controltext of the renderer is set to the grid cell' cellvalue and renderer loses focus to the grid cell. Because of this, you cannot type further into the cell without making further click on it. This is a default behavior.

Please let me know if you have any further concerns.
