Dear Syncfusion Support Team,

I added to the GridDataControl the ability to Drag and Drop the selected elements.                               

The problem is, if i select more than one elemt in the grid and then I drag the elements, only the draged element is selected and the other ones are deselected.

I think this depends one the event to select an element in the DataGrid. The selection changes if the left mouse button was pressed, in my case the selection should change if the left mouse button wsa clicked.

Is it possible to change the event for selecting an element in the DataGrid?

I attached a short Video and Code example.

Best regards,

Hi Kramer,


Thank you for your update.


You can achieve your requirement by using the below code snippet,


Code Snippet[C#]:



DragGrid.Model.SelectionChanging += new GridSelectionChangingEventHandler(Model_SelectionChanging);


        void Model_SelectionChanging(object sender, GridSelectionChangingEventArgs e)


            if (e.Reason == GridSelectionReason.MouseDown && (sender as GridDataTableModel).SelectedRanges.AnyRangeContains(e.ClickRange))


                e.Cancel = true;






Please find the modified sample in the below location,


Sample: ModifiedSample.zip


Please let us know if you have any queries.

Hello Mr. Rajasekar,
thank you for the quick response. For now the Problem is solved. But with this fix a new Problem occurs instead, if I want to select one element in the range of selected elements, it is not possible. So i have to select one element outside of the range and then i can select the one which was in the range of the selected elements.

Hi Kramer,


Thanks for the patience.


We have analyzed your query and we have modified the sample based as per your requirement and it can be download from the following location.

Note: In this case if you start drag the SelectedRange by using mouse  click along with ctrl key the selected range will appear correctly
