    Hi Tugu,

    This behavior is specific to MS TextBox. It displays the ‘x’ sign when its TextWrapping property is set to 'NoWrap’.

    You can overcome this behavior by setting the TextBox’s TextWrapping property to WordWrap inside FlexGrid’s PrepareCellForEdit event as follows:

     private void OnPrepareCellForEdit(object sender, GridCellEditEventArgs e)
                if(e.Editor is TextBox texBox)
                    texBox.TextWrapping = TextWrapping.Wrap;

    Or you can also remove the delete button from the Template by overriding TextBox’s OnApplyTemplate method as follows:

    public class CustomTextBox : TextBox
            protected override void OnApplyTemplate()
                var deleteButton = GetTemplateChild("DeleteButton") as Button;
                var grid = VisualTreeHelper.GetChild(this, 0) as Grid;

    And then set it to FlexGrid GridColumn’s CellEditingTemplate as follows:

                    <c1:GridColumn Binding="Name">
                                <local:CustomTextBox Padding="7, 7, 0, 0"
                                                     Text="{Binding Name, Mode=TwoWay, UpdateSourceTrigger=PropertyChanged}"></local:CustomTextBox>

    Please refer to the same from the attached sample. (see FlexGridEdit.zip)

    Best Regards,
