Is there a way to prevent a grid cell whose CellType is "ComboBox" from selecting the next item in its DataSource when the cell is double-clicked?

Sorry, I didn't realize this was under the ASP.NET forums.

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.

The double clicking of the combo box cell which changes the values can be canceled by overriding the OnEditPartMouseDown and OnDoubleClick from the GridComboBoxCellRenderer, then add the renderer to the current grid's combo box cell renderer.

Please refer the code below:
//Assigning the custome renderer
gridControl1.CellRenderers["ComboBox"] = new CustomDropDownRenderer(gridControl1, gridControl1.CellModels["ComboBox"]);

//The custome renderer class
public class CustomDropDownRenderer : GridComboBoxCellRenderer
public CustomDropDownRenderer(GridControlBase grid, GridCellModelBase model)
: base(grid, model)
protected override void OnEditPartMouseDown(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
//base.OnEditPartMouseDown(sender, e);
protected override void OnDoubleClick(int rowIndex, int colIndex, MouseEventArgs e)
//base.OnDoubleClick(rowIndex, colIndex, e);

Also please refer the sample modified from our sample browser attached below, which illustrates the mentioned behavior:
