Hi!
Is there a way to _not_ enter the edit mode if the user changes the selected cell using the arrow keys or by pressing enter?
(Event if the user was in edit mode before). I want to get closer to the behavior of excel.

Hello Alex,

For this requirement, you can benefit from the KeyBoard Command Provider mechanism which RadGridView supports. Basically, within the overriden ProvideCommandsForKey() method, you can implement logic as suggested in the snippet below.
public override IEnumerable<ICommand> ProvideCommandsForKey(Key key)
{
    List<ICommand> commandsToExecute = base.ProvideCommandsForKey(key).ToList();
 
    if (key == Key.Enter)
    {
        commandsToExecute.Clear();
        this.parentGrid.CommitEdit();
    }
    if (key == Key.Tab)
    {
        commandsToExecute.Clear();
        this.parentGrid.CommitEdit();
    }
    return commandsToExecute;
 
}

Can you please give the suggestion a try and let me know how it goes?

Best Regards,
