How can I select all text in GridTextBoxControl, when I start edit?

I tried this:

private void grid_CurrentCellControlGotFocus(object sender, ControlEventArgs e)
GridTextBoxControl textBox = grid.CurrentCell.Renderer.Control as GridTextBoxControl;

if (textBox != null)
textBox.SelectionStart = 0;
textBox.SelectionLength = textBox.Text.Length;

But this didn't work.

Hi Juraj,

You can achieve the desired behavior by setting the ActivateCurrentCellBehavior property to GridCellActivateAction.SelectAll. Please refer to the code,

this.gridControl1.ActivateCurrentCellBehavior = GridCellActivateAction.SelectAll;
