If click on a cell and type a letter ('j'), the PreviewTextInput event is not firing (only CurrentCellChanged is firing). If you type another character, the event fires.

Hi Andre,

Thanks for using Syncfusion products. The TextPreviewInput event is getting fired properly from the first instance we type, I have recorded a video file for you to check,


If you could provide a sample that reproduces this issue it would be helpful. Please let me know.

I attached a sample application that demonstrates the issue. As I described previously, the first time you type something, the PreviewTextInput is not firing. Please let me know what the problem might be and how to solve it.

Hi Andre,

I got it to work by setting this property in ExcelGridControl's constructor,

Model.Options.ActivateCurrentCellBehavior = GridCellActivateAction.ClickOnCell;

Please check with it.
