I am using dataGridView control. Usually while pressing Enter Key in a cell it will focus on cell in next row, I want to set focus on next column. I have achieved this by using below code.

private void dicadmasDataGridView_KeyDown(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventArgs e)
            if (e.KeyCode == Keys.Return)
                if (dicadmasDataGridView.CurrentCell.ColumnIndex == dicadmasDataGridView.ColumnCount - 1)
                    dicadmasDataGridView.CurrentCell = dicadmasDataGridView[0, dicadmasDataGridView.CurrentCell.RowIndex + 1];
                    dicadmasDataGridView.CurrentCell = dicadmasDataGridView[dicadmasDataGridView.CurrentCell.ColumnIndex + 1, dicadmasDataGridView.CurrentCell.RowIndex];
                e.SuppressKeyPress = true;

My problem is that if I am editing something in a particular cell and press enter it goes to the next row. I want to apply same behavior on the cell while editing also.

Thanks & Regards

System.Windows.Forms? Tag it: "Forms".

Not clear what exactly do you want, "while editing" vs. something else.

After "Enter" key cursor should focus on to next column. but now it goes to next row.

Well, this is the default behavior, as far as I can see. You are trying to change it. How do you know that your handler (shown above) is even called? Did you run it under the debugger? I don't see your "+=" operator (adding a handler to the invocation list of an event). Also, you might need to handle PreviewKeyDown instead.
