When you press the enter key to stop the Editing, DataGridView CellEndEdit event occurs.  Then the cursor moves to next row, at this point SelectionChanged event occurs.  Try adding this to your program to change the behavior.

Add some global variables
        private Int32 currentRow;
        private Int32 currentCell;
        private bool resetRow = false;

Open in new window


Add the CellEndEdit event and put in the following code

        private void dataGridView1_CellEndEdit(object sender, DataGridViewCellEventArgs e)
        {
            resetRow = true;
            currentRow = e.RowIndex;
            currentCell = e.ColumnIndex;            
        }

Open in new window


Add the SelectionChanged event and put in the following code
        private void dataGridView1_SelectionChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            if (resetRow)
            {
                resetRow = false;
                if ((Int32)dataGridView1.CurrentCell.ColumnIndex != dataGridView1.Columns.Count -1)
                    dataGridView1.CurrentCell = dataGridView1.Rows[currentRow].Cells[currentCell + 1];
                else
                    dataGridView1.CurrentCell = dataGridView1.Rows[currentRow + 1].Cells[0];
            }
        }

Which event are you binding this code to?  KeyPress, KeyDown?

It looks like KeyDown.  Let me try to replicate your issue.
