We have a gridview and are having a problem validating cells.  Problem is this:  the first cell is valid, but the second is not valid.  When the user changes the current row and then clicks away with their mouse, the focus returns to the first cell, but I want it to go to the second cell, so that the user can enter a correct value.  How can I make the focus go to the invalid cell, not to the cell the user mouse-clicked out of?   

Thank you.

Hello Seb,

Thank you for your question.

From the description of your scenario I assume that you use the RowValidating event of RadGridView. I would suggest using the CellValidating event to accomplish this case. Cancelling this event, when the provided from the user value is not valid, will prevent the user from leaving this cell.

You can find an example for using CellValidating event and an additional description of the RadGridView validation mechanism in this help article.

I hope it helps you accomplish your scenario.

Best regards,
