    Hello Shahrooz,

    Thank you for contacting us. 

    You can access the editors in the CellEditorInitialized event and change the TextAlignment property to HorizontalAlignment.Center. In order to achieve your goal, please have a look at the following code snippet:
    void radGridView1_CellEditorInitialized(object sender, Telerik.WinControls.UI.GridViewCellEventArgs e)
        RadTextBoxEditor textEditor = e.ActiveEditor as RadTextBoxEditor;
        GridSpinEditor spinEditor = e.ActiveEditor as GridSpinEditor;
        if (spinEditor != null)
            GridSpinEditorElement el = spinEditor.EditorElement as GridSpinEditorElement;
            el.TextAlignment = HorizontalAlignment.Center;
        if (textEditor != null)
            RadTextBoxEditorElement el = textEditor.EditorElement as RadTextBoxEditorElement;
            el.TextAlign = HorizontalAlignment.Center;

    The example demonstrates how to set the alignment of two editors (textbox editor and spin editor). If you use another editor in you application, you need to set their alignment too. 

    I also attached a sample demo. 

    Should you have further questions, I would be glad to help.
