Is there any way to continue to the next cell when I type the maximum number of allowed characters in a TextBox cell or MaskEdit cell? Thanks.

I think you can use CurrentCellChanged to do this for a TextBox.
private void gridControl1_CurrentCellChanged(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
	GridCurrentCell cc = this.gridControl1.CurrentCell;
	int len = this.gridControl1[cc.RowIndex, cc.ColIndex].MaxLength;
	if(cc.Renderer.ControlText.Length == len)
		this.gridControl1.CurrentCell.MoveRight(1, false);

This works great if I am in insert mode, but if the user is in overwrite mode, and the cell already has the max number of chars, this approach will not work. Is there a way to determine the location within the cell the user has typed a key? Or is there a better solution?

You can use code like GridTextBoxControl tb = cc.Renderer.Control as GridTextBoxControl; to get the textbox from the currentcell renderer. But, I do not know of a simple way to decide whether you are in the overstrike mode. The TextBox and RichTextBox don't seem to expose such a property. So, I think any solution will require some more coding to handle the particular situations.
