I put this event onCloseUp cidce that allows me to add a new record with the focus in the same column.

  cxGrid1DBTableView1.DataController.PostEditingData;

  cxGrid1DBTableView1.DataController.Append;

why not use the insert key ?

sometimes users ask for a solution like this because they don't know the shortcut key
enter is very widely used already in the grid
it could break the existing functionality

in the options.behavior did you try playing with the checkboxes
GoToNextCellOnEnter and FocusCellOnCycle
and datacontroller.options dcoInsertOnNewItemRowFocusing ?

I saw these settings,
Now when I press the enter button, the focus moves to the next record,
but in the current record is not the most blank,
but if I select a value from the current record taken from loockup all goes well
