Thank you for contacting us.
A possible solution is to hook onkeypress client event of the input declarative and call editRow
method once you enter some character. Please check out the following code snippet.
columns.Bound(p => p.ProductName).ClientTemplate(
type=\"text\" class=\"templateInput\" onkeypress=\"putInEdit(this)\" />")
grid = $(
i tried this approach and the row is put in edit mode after the first key you pressed. Regards your second question you can focus the cell for editing on edit event of the grid.
.Events(e => e.Edit("editEvent"))
If you still experience some issues I would appreciate if you can provide a small runnable sample which I can examine locally and provide you with alternative approach.
I am looking forward to your reply.
