SpreadsheetSelectionBehaviorOptions.MoveActiveCellMode Property

Specifies the direction in which an active cell moves on pressing the ENTER key. This is a dependency property.

Namespace:DevExpress.Xpf.Spreadsheet
Assembly:DevExpress.Xpf.Spreadsheet.v19.2.dll

Expanded Syntax

Property value

Type: MoveActiveCellModeOnEnterPress
A DevExpress.XtraSpreadsheet.MoveActiveCellModeOnEnterPress enumeration value.

Expanded Remarks

By default, when the ENTER key is pressed, the DevExpress.XtraSpreadsheet.SpreadsheetControl moves an active cell one cell down. Use the MoveActiveCellMode property to set another direction to move an active cell (for example, Up, Right or Left). To keep an active cell on pressing ENTER, set the MoveActiveCellMode property to DevExpress.XtraSpreadsheet.MoveActiveCellModeOnEnterPress.None.

The SHIFT+ENTER key combination moves an active cell in the opposite direction of what the MoveActiveCellMode property specifies.

TAB and SHIFT+TAB moves an active cell one cell to the right and to the left respectively, and this behavior is not customized.

Note

If a cell range or multiple ranges are selected in a worksheet, ENTER, SHIFT+ENTER, TAB and SHIFT+TAB move an active cell within this selection only.
