To assign a custom in-place editor of a particular type to a cell or cell range in a worksheet, use the CustomCellInplaceEditorCollection.Add method and pass the appropriate CustomCellInplaceEditorType enumeration value as a parameter. Information about cell in-place editors of the listed types is saved to a file in XLS, XLSX, XLSB, XLT, or XLTX format, so the corresponding editors can be successfully restored when you load a document into the Spreadsheet control again. If you use an in-place editor of the CustomCellInplaceEditorType.Custom type, you must handle the SpreadsheetControl.CustomCellEdit event to define a specific editor to be assigned to the required cells.

For an example on how to use custom editors for in-place editing of cell content, refer to the How to: Assign Custom In-place Editors to Worksheet Cells article.
