That's it. 

Just move the cursor, and the UI focus, to a specific cell.

Trying to implement the behaviour in the find/replace function, when the user clicks on a search result in the list, and the appropriate cell is highlighted.

OK - finally found it here:

https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/controls/spreadsheet/features/ui-working-with-selection#changing-the-ui-selection

Interesting way to select a cell:

'get a selection object

 Dim s2 = myControl.SpreadsheetElement.ActiveWorksheetEditor.Selection

'point it to a new cell.

 s2.Select(new CellIndex(1,2),false)

Suggestion: it would be helpful to provide a  simpler 'shortcut' method like:

myControl.selectCell(1,2)

Hello, Ian,

I am glad that you have found a suitable solution for the scenario you need to cover. Indeed, the UI selection is the appropriate way to focus a specific cell.

The provided feedback is greatly appreciated. We will consider it in the future improvement of the control. Meanwhile, since RadSpreadsheet relies on the RadSpreadProcessing library, the available API depends on it.

If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.
