I have an editable grid using InCell as the Edit Mode.  I have one field that is editable.  When that cell gets focus I want it to select the contents of the cell.  So for instance if the cell contains "100" and it gets focus I want the "100" to be selected so that the user can type over it with out having to backspace.   I have tried putting a this.select();  in the onEdit Code when that column is being edited but it isn't working.

Thx for help

Hi Lee,

It is possible to achieve that by calling the select method on the input inside the cell. Have in mind that when editing numeric data the input is replaced with numeric text box dynamically. In the dojo illustrates how to achieve the aforementioned approach.
