I am building on the radgrid batch update code.  Instead of double clicking on a cell and then unhiding an editable tag, in my case turn off a label and turn on a drop down list, I want to get a whole column and then unhide every cell in the column.

I'm looking at this property to get the collection of columns:
grid.MasterTableView.ColGroup.Cols
If I have this collection of columns and I iterate though it will I be able to access the cell that contains the tags that I want to manipulate.

In other words will this get me a collection of editable cells that I can manipulate with the following code where 'editedCell' represents one of the a cell that contains a label <span> and a dropdownlist <select>?

 function ShowColumnEditor() { 
            editedCell = this
 
            //hide text and show column editor in the edited cell 
            var cellText = this.getElementsByTagName("span")[0]; 
            if (cellText) { 
                cellText.style.display = "none"
 
                //display the span which wrapps the hidden checkbox editor 
                if (this.getElementsByTagName("span")[1]) { 
                    this.getElementsByTagName("span")[1].style.display = ""
                } 
                var colEditor = this.getElementsByTagName("input")[0] || this.getElementsByTagName("select")[0]; 
                //if the column editor is a form decorated select dropdown, show it instead of the original 
                if (colEditor.className == "rfdRealInput" && colEditor.tagName.toLowerCase() == "select") { 
                    colEditor = Telerik.Web.UI.RadFormDecorator.getDecoratedElement(colEditor); 
                } 
                colEditor.style.display = ""
                colEditor.focus(); 
            } 
        }
