 Hi Gaukhar Massabayeva,

Thank you for your interested in Syncfusion products.


Highlighting any row while selecting a cell

You can achieve this functionality using the ListBoxSelectionMode property. Please refer the following codes which are used for your reference.


this.gridGroupingControl1.TableOptions.ListBoxSelectionMode =SelectionMode.MultiSimple;

           this.gridGroupingControl1.TableOptions.ListBoxSelectionColorOptions = GridListBoxSelectionColorOptions.ApplySelectionColor;

            this.gridGroupingControl1.TableOptions.AllowSelection =GridSelectionFlags.AlphaBlend;


Please refer the following UG Link  also. It will helps to you to get more details about this property,

Thank you Vinish.
You solution works.
However it is now conflicting with the current settings in the grid.
After implementing your suggestions. I no longer can select certain cells and rows, without the whole row being selected.
For example:
I want to select only the middle section of my grid













but instead it enforces selection of the whole row:













I tried Focused Selection but e.Style is missing AlphaBlend property that I need.
Please be so kind to share your expertise in solving this. Thank you

Middle Selection

We have implement MidSelection property for your requirement. Please refer the following codes.


Please enable the MidSelection property in form load.


void gridGroupingControl1_TableControlCurrentCellStartEditing(object sender, GridTableControlCancelEventArgs e)


            GridCurrentCell c = this.gridGroupingControl1.TableControl.CurrentCell;

            if (midselection == true && c.ColIndex > 0 && c.RowIndex > 2)



                int colCount = this.gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.Columns.Count;

                int midCol = colCount / 2;




                this.gridGroupingControl1.TableControl.Selections.Add(GridRangeInfo.Cells(c.RowIndex, midCol, c.RowIndex, midCol + 1));




Please refer the attached sample also it will helps to you for further analysis.


Please let me know if you have further concerns.
