Right now, the only way I can find for a user to edit a cell is for them to put the focus on that cell (either through moving there with the keyboard or clicking on it) and then clicking on the cell to put it into edit mode. In Excel, if a cell has the focus it automatically enters edit mode when you start typing. Is there any way to reproduce that functionality in Elegant Grid?

We will add built-in support for this feature in the next version. At the moment you can easily achieve the requested behavior by putting the following code into the GridControl.KeyPress event handler:

private void boundGridControl1_KeyPress( object sender, KeyPressEventArgs e)
   if(boundGridControl1.FocusedCell != null &&
      (char.IsLetter(e.KeyChar) || char .IsNumber(e.KeyChar)))
      if (boundGridControl1.FocusedCell.Editing)

Private Sub boundGridControl1_KeyPress( ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As KeyPressEventArgs) 
   If Not boundGridControl1.FocusedCell Is Nothing _
      AndAlso (Char .IsLetter(e.KeyChar) OrElse Char.IsNumber(e.KeyChar)) Then 

      If boundGridControl1.FocusedCell.Editing Then 
      End If 
   End If 
End Sub
