Before a Cell can be edited it must first be activated by either setting its Cell.IsActive property to true or by setting the control's ActiveCell property.

Note: Once the Cell is activated you can cause it to enter edit mode by calling ExecuteCommand(RoutedCommand) with the DataPresenterCommands' DataPresenterCommands.StartEditMode command. The cell will only enter edit mode if its corresponding Field's Field.AllowEditResolved property returns true.
