    Need some special behavior on a textbox column. 
    Like doing something in the textchanging event, keypress event and validation event.
    And i want to be able to set a fixed length on the  text box. 
    I need to do for several grids and several columns.
    I know that i can do this by subscribing to events on the activeeditor -> textboxitem. But i want to subclass the GridViewTextboxColumn and do it directly, so i dont need to write the same code over and over again.

    Can you please help me?

    Hi Svein Thomas,

    Thank you for writing.

    It seems you will need a custom column with a custom cell. You can see what you can achieve with a custom cell by going to this article in our product documentation - RadGridView - Custom cell. Also, you might want to extend the behavior of the editor. You can do that by creating your own editor which would be specific to your custom column. You can take a look at this help article on Using custom editors.

    I hope this will help you. If you need further assistance I would be glad to provide it.

    All the best,
