    I have a GridViewDataColumn where I can enter text in the cell, but behavior for the text entered, like:
    1. Selecting text using Shift + Left/Right arrows,
    2. Hold down Left/Right arrow, the cursor should move continuously until the key is released,
    3. Similarly for Shift + Shift + Left/Right arrows,
     does not work.

    I want to know what events need to be handled to get the above behavior?

    As I understand you edit a cell and you would like to have the three listed functionalities working. Please note the default editor of the GridViewDataColumn for String properties is a standart TextBox. You will need to modify its behaviour as per your requirements. You can also predefine the CellEditTemplate and place what editor you would like to.
