Greetings,
  I am attempting to have the text in a GridViewTextBoxEditor selected when a user sets focus to a cell using that editor.

I'm not finding any access to the underling TextBox object (I am assuming there must be one) via either the GridViewTextBoxEditor or the Field object of a cell.

I was expecting to the standard selection and caret properties/method exposed via the GridViewTextBoxEditor.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
   Chris

Hi Chris,

In the attached archive you can find an example of a text editor that selects its text. I used four steps:

1. The class SelectedTextBoxEditor takes care of selecting the text;
2. SelectedTextBoxEditorSettings indicates, through its generic type parameter, the class from which to create an instance of the editor;
3. The columns using the modified editor need to be defined explicitly;
4. A simple control template for SelectedTextBoxEditor should also be defined.

In our Q3 release in November you will find this feature built-in.
Thank you for your question. We will be glad to be of further assistance if necessary.

All the best,
