Enable scientific format as input when editing a cell

Objective: On editing a cell, allow user to enter an exponential number using scientific notation OR a floating point number. E.g. 1.25e+3 or 1250.0 as an input to the cell will then be handled identically.

I have played with the cell editor and renderers by changing the format parameter to format=wx.grid.GRID_FLOAT_FORMAT_SCIENTIFIC, but this does not change the behaviour of the cell input and only the feedback. I also could not find any useful edit control when selecting a cell through wx.grid.GridCellEditor.

Any feedback is appreciated, thanks.
