    I need to figure out how to catch the event where the user starts typing in a grid cell so that I can enable my Save and Undo buttons at that point.
    I have found the PreparedCellForEdit which fires when the cell goes into edit mode, but at this point the user has not changed anything, so this fires too early. I don't want to enable my Save button beforethe user has actually typed something..
    I have also found the CellEditEnded event, but this doesn't fire until the user has left the cell. That means he/she needs to select another cell before the application can enable the Save button.

    Isn't there an event I can catch which fires only when the user starts typing something in a cell?

    RadGridView does not provide such event. You may use the events which TextBox provides by placing a TextBox of your own in the CellEditTemplate.
