Is there an equivalent of GetSel/SetSel for CExtGridWnd. I want to detect the space bar within the 1st 6 Char typed. Can I do this?

The CExtGridCell::OnKey() virtual method is invoked for the focused grid cell only and when there is no in-place editor window activated.
You can override the CExtGridCell::OnInplaceControlWindowProc() and/or CExtGridWnd::OnGridCellInplaceControlWindowProc() virtual methods to catch the WM_CHAR, WM_CUT, WM_PASTE and EM_REPLACESEL messages sent to the in-pace activated cell editor window. These messages perform the text changing in the edit control.

Thanks for your response to this query.  Sorry I got dragged away for a few days. 

I had investigated OnInplaceControlTextInputVerify and also OnInplaceControlTextInputComplete but the only way I could find a particular Char was to search sTextNew for it.  Example: if sTextNew = "Unit4 York Ave" I want use the 1st space(between "Unit4" & "York") to seperate sTextNew into strSite="Unit4" & strRoad="York Ave".  I can use OnInplaceControlTextInputComplete to search sTextNew on exiting the cell.  If I were to use a function like

CExtGridCell::OnKey() I could chk for nChar=32 but this func doesn’t respond during InPlaceEdit. Or does it? I hope this will clarify.

Please provide us with more details about your task. If you want to trace the in-place cell text editing, then you should override the CExtGridCell::OnInplaceControlTextInputVerify() virtual method in your grid cell class or the CExtGridWnd::OnGridCellInplaceControlTextInputVerify() virtual method in your grid control class.

Perfect, thanks a lot.
