Set the Current Cell

You can set the current cell of the RadGridView control by using the CurrentCellInfo class.

Example 1 demonstrates how to so in the Loaded event handler by specifying an item from the control's Items collection and a column from the Columns collection.

Example 1: Setting the current cell via an item and a column

private void gridView_Loaded(object sender, EventArgs e) 
    gridView.CurrentCellInfo = new GridViewCellInfo(gridView.Items[5], gridView.Columns["Number"]); 
Private Sub gridView_Loaded(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) 
    gridView.CurrentCellInfo = New GridViewCellInfo(gridView.Items(5), gridView.Columns("Number")) 
End Sub 

Please note that for this to work, the control must be loaded.

Figure 1 demonstrates that the current cell is set and at this point if you hit F2 that cell will go in edit mode.
