C# datagridview row enforcing casing

Based on somebody's answer to a previous question, I enforce character casing in datagridview cells as seen in the attached code.

Now I need to selectively enforce casing.  That is, for colDesc1 I don't want to enforce casing whereas for colItemNo I do want to enforce casing.

I can't find a way to do this.  I tried e.Control.Name, but it is an empty string.  I noticed e.Control.Tag, but cannot assign a tag in the datagridview interface.  I tried e.Control.Location, but that didn't work.

Any suggestions?
private void dgvMain_EditingControlShowing(object sender, DataGridViewEditingControlShowingEventArgs e)
        {
            if (e.Control is TextBox)
                ((TextBox)e.Control).CharacterCasing = CharacterCasing.Upper;
        }

What about expanding the code to this:
private void dgvMain_EditingControlShowing(object sender, DataGridViewEditingControlShowingEventArgs e)
{
    DataGridView grid = sender as DataGridView;

    if (grid.SelectedColumns[0].Name == "colItemNo" && e.Control is TextBox)
        ((TextBox)e.Control).CharacterCasing = CharacterCasing.Upper;
}

I was not able to use SelectedColumns[0] (apparently it's not set), but I was able to use ColumnIndex to get where I was going.

thanks for the help
