    Hi guys,

    Is there a possibility in incell edit mode, on edit, when a text/numeric input shows up, from the EditTemplate, it's text to be selected by default?

    What I want to achieve is the following: in a numeric input we have the default value of zero. I want that value to be selected as when the user does a copy+paste in the input that value will be overwritten. If it's not selected the cursor appears after that value so when the user does a copy+paste then the new value will be concatenated with the value that was present in the input before the copy+paste, which is an issue that I don't want to achieve.


    I hope you understood what I want to achieve.

    Best regards,
