I am using window essential grid.
I want to ask how can I select the whole text ( selectedtext of textbox ) of the current cell when start editing a cell instead of just set focus on the cell as I want to clear the cell once the user try to type anything in the cell.

Hi Jasper,

You could try setting the ActivateCurrentCellBehavior property to 'SelectAll' to achieve the desired behavior. See the code:

this.gridDataBoundGrid1.ActivateCurrentCellBehavior = GridCellActivateAction.SelectAll;
