If the cell associated with this DataGridViewCell.DataGridViewCellAccessibleObject is a DataGridViewHeaderCell, this method does nothing. Otherwise, this method selects the cell, makes it the current cell, and takes one of the following actions:

  • If the cell's ReadOnly property value is true, this method returns.

  • If the cell's EditType property value is null, meaning the cell cannot host an editing control, this method returns.

  • If the cell is currently entering or leaving edit mode (for example, if this method is called in a CellBeginEdit or CellEndEdit event handler), this method returns.

  • If the cell is currently in edit mode, this method commits and ends the edit.

  • If the cell is not in edit mode and the DataGridView.EditMode property is set to EditProgrammatically, this method returns.

  • If none of the preceding actions is taken, this method causes the cell to enter edit mode.
