Hello there.
My question is how to catch the "enter" key pressing while a cell is in TextBox mode?
The point is that my grid is readonly by default, but sometimes I need to let the user to edit a cell, and get the content by pressing "enter" key.

Hi Erlan,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.

Please try using CurrentCellKeyDown event in GridControl to achieve this functionality.

Refer the code below:

######### C# Code
this.gridControl1.CurrentCellKeyDown += new KeyEventHandler(gridControl1_CurrentCellKeyDown);
void gridControl1_CurrentCellKeyDown(object sender, KeyEventArgs e)
if (this.gridControl1.CurrentCell.Renderer.StyleInfo.CellType == "TextBox")
if (e.KeyCode == Keys.Enter)
{ // Catch the Enter key
// perform the function
######### VB Code
AddHandler gridControl1.CurrentCellKeyDown, AddressOf gridControl1_CurrentCellKeyDown
Private Sub gridControl1_CurrentCellKeyDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As KeyEventArgs)
If Me.gridControl1.CurrentCell.Renderer.StyleInfo.CellType Is "TextBox" Then
If e.KeyCode = Keys.Enter Then
' perform the function
End If
End If
End Sub

Please let me know if you have any queries.

Lingaraj S.
