Option to activate incell editing mode in the Grid on double-click
Based on the examples here (, "incell" editing allows editing a single cell at a time. The edit mode is activated upon a single click in the cell.

I would like to have a way to combine this with "cell" selectable mode, e.g. like this?
* A single click on a cell selects the cell and fires the "change" event.
* A double click on a cell activates the edit mode for the cell.

The desired requirement can be met using the approach demonstrated in this dojo. The overall idea is to manually open/close the cell for edit on certain conditions.

We also need double-click editing as our client has requested it. We have extended the Kendo Grid for now, which is working, but is not officially supported. If you use the closecell method on single-click like we tried first, it messes up keyboard navigation as the cell loses focus.
