When you click on the filter icon in a Grid column, the popup window by default sets the focus to the drop down list for the filter operators(Contains, Starts With, etc.). My users want to start typing in the text field immediately. How do I set the focus to the text field as soon as the filter box pops up? I looked at the filterMenuInit event, but couldn't see a solution.

To change the focus, the grid current() method can be used:
To open a cell for editing, you can use the editCell() method:
In case I misunderstood the requirement, please provide more details.
If you would like to disable a particular column for editing you could set editable to return false for that column.
Please let me know if that suits your purposes. Alternatively you could modify the above example for further assistance or provide more details for the functionality you are looking for.
