Telerik.Web.UI.GridColumnEventArgs OnCellSelecting Property

note

To get or set property values for client API properties, you must call property accessor methods that are named with the get_ and set_ prefixes. For example, to get or set a value for a property such as cancel, you call the get_cancel or set_cancel.

This event is fired before a cell is selected.
