Cursor in GridWeb Cell

I am using GridWeb in an ASP.NET application.

When I want to edit the text in a cell, 3 clicks are needed:

- The first selects the cell

- The second places the cursor at the end of the cell

- The thirs places the cursor in its correct location where the user wants to edit

Could you please advise how I can remove the need of these multiple clicks, possibly through a script. If possible I would like to avoid having to upgrade to a new GridWeb version...

function cellSelected(cell)


if (window.event != null && window.event.type == "click" && window.event.button == 0)


cell.fireEvent("onclick", window.event);
