    Hello Binu,

    Thank you for writing.

    You can access the editor in the CellEditorInitialized event. For example:
    private void RadGridView1_CellEditorInitialized(object sender, GridViewCellEventArgs e)
        var editor = e.ActiveEditor as GridColorPickerEditor;
        if (editor != null)
            var element = editor.EditorElement as GridColorPickerElement;
            RadColorDialogForm form = element.ColorDialog.ColorDialogForm as RadColorDialogForm;
            form.ShowCustomColors = false;
            form.ShowProfessionalColors = false;
            form.ShowSystemColors = false;

    Please let me know if there is something else I can help you with. 
    Check out the Windows Forms project converter, which aids the conversion process from standard Windows Forms applications written in C# or VB to Telerik UI for WinForms.For more information check out this blog post and share your thoughts.

    I have RadGridView with GridViewColorColumn . The default color picker dialog is far more advanced than what i need. I just need to allow user to pick basic colors. I see a ENUMS in RadColorDialog  class such as ShowBasicColors, ShowSystemColors, ShowWebColors, ShowProfessionalColors. 

    Question is, how do i modify this behavior from Grid?


    i need to show only basic colors.


    please help.
