Best of luck.

(We use a standard approach in this type of instance. Select a row in a 
gridview and if your user is allowed to edit it, then it shows an editor 
in a panel below the grid. IOW the grid is just a "selector" and say 
double clicking the row or any column or right clicking on a cell brings 
up a menu. Much easier to control and the user can "SEE" the intent of 
their actions.
