Forums » Prof-UIS Tech Support » OnGbwBeginEdit is not called when I double-click a cell in CExtGridWnd Collapse All

Why doesn’t OnGbwBeginEdit get called before editing begins on a cell?  I need to detect when a user is about to edit a cell so I can determine if the input should be masked or not (e.g., password field).

Could you insert your grid initialization code into this simple test project and send it to us?

OnGbwBeginEdit is not called in my custom class.
I am convinced it did work properly when using prior versions of Prof-UI.
I am currently using 2.89.
I have tried various combinations of the editing style flags.
I want to avoid setting the cell to read-only, because I do not want the cell to appear grayed-out.

Here is my normal setup:
ReportColumnProportionalResizingSet( true, false );
SiwModifyStyle( __EGBS_GRIDLINES_H,    0, true ); // enable horizontal grid lines
BseModifyStyle( __ENABLE_CELLEDITING_BSE_STYLES__ ); // enable cell editing
ReportGridModifyStyle( 0,    __ERGS_ENABLE_COLUMN_CTX_MENU, false ); // disable column context menu
ReportGridModifyStyle( 0,    __ERGS_ENABLE_COLUMN_LIST_IN_CTX_MENU, false ); // disable field chooser

I tried:
BseModifyStyle( __ENABLE_CELLEDITING_BSE_STYLES__ | __EGWS_BSE_EDIT_SINGLE_LCLICK ); // enable cell editing

You should apply the __EGWS_BSE_EDIT_DOUBLE_LCLICK style to your grid window using its CExtGridWnd::BseModifyStyle() method. This style is present in the grid by default because it’s listed in the definition of the __EGWS_BSE_DEFAULT preprocessor variable. Please check whether you removed this style during grid initialization.
