Hi Natasha,

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion Products.

To access the SelectionColor property of the specific richtextcelltype cell in grid, you can handle its renderer through the MouseDown event. Please refer to the following code.

private void gridControl1_MouseDown(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
int row, col;
this.gridControl1.PointToRowCol(new Point(e.X, e.Y), out row, out col);
if (gridControl1[row, col].CellType == "RichText")
GridCurrentCell cc = this.gridControl1.CurrentCell;
GridRichTextBoxCellRenderer rtr = cc.Renderer as GridRichTextBoxCellRenderer;
RichTextBox richText = rtr.Control as RichTextBox;
//access properties for the specific cell
