Cell editors can be activated if the view's DataViewBase.AllowEditing property is set to true and the DataViewBase.NavigationStyle property is set to GridViewNavigationStyle.Cell.

To invoke the cell's editor in code, you should focus the cell and call the ShowEditor method:

tableView.Grid.CurrentColumn = tableView.Grid.Columns[0];
Dispatcher.BeginInvoke(new Action(() => {
}), DispatcherPriority.Render);

Refer to Focusing for information on how to move cell and row focus.

The ShowEditor method raises the GridViewBase.ShowingEditor event. This event allows you to prevent showing editors for individual cells, thus preventing their values from being edited. After the editor has been shown, the GridControl raises the GridViewBase.ShownEditor event.
