Needing to cast a DataGridView cell into a TextBoxBase

I don't know if it's even possible or if I'm even on the right track....but the quick background of this issue is that we have a third party spellchecker (Component1) and need to use it with the DataGridView.  What is required for the real time spell checker is that it be passed a byval TextBoxBase (which is called when the user enters the cell).  I'm still on the learning curve of .Net and have tried several things which I though would work (DataGridViewTextBoxCell, DataGridViewTextBoxEditingControl, DGV.EditingControl...etc) but can't seem to get the correct cast for a textboxbase.
Please let me know if more information is needed or if anything needs to be clarified.  And thanks in advance!!

Found out what the issue was...wouldn't you know it, just when I finished entering this question.  I'm including the code snippet in case anyone has the same problem I did:

 Private Sub _flex_EditingControlShowing(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewEditingControlShowingEventArgs) Handles _flex.EditingControlShowing
        Dim tb As TextBoxBase = TryCast(e.Control, TextBoxBase)
        If tb IsNot Nothing Then
            _spell.SetSpellChecking(tb, True)
        End If
    End Sub
