We're building a scientific application and our users should be able to type in charachters like °, σ, µ, ... in a grid. They use ALT codes (press ALT and a sequence of digits) since these characters are not present on most keyboards: - ° ALT+248 - σ ALT+229 - µ ALT+230 (more: http://usefulshortcuts.com/alt-codes/maths-alt-codes.php)
All standard Windows Forms controls can handle these alt-codes, just like Excel, Word, Notepad ... It doesn't work in the Syncfusion GridDataBoundGrid that we are using.
We're currently using version 11.3040.0.30, can you provide us a fix?

Thank you for using Syncfusion products.
We would like to let you know that in our current architecture we don’t have
support for use of Alt codes in our Grid. We suggest you to create an incident
regarding this so that our support team engineers will assist you with proper
details regarding this feature.
You can create the DT incident from the following link.
Please let us know if you need any further assistance.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
We would like to let you know that the ALT codes will work
only if the CellType is textbox. If you use CellType like ‘Currency’ or any
other CellType then these Alt Codes won’t work. We suggest you to assign the
CellType as TextBox to use the Alt Codes effectively. Please refer the below
screenshot and Dashboard sample.
