Disable dragging scroll of grid contents but keep scroll bars enabled

Is there a way to disable the scrolling of the grid when a user clicks and drags their mouse of the contents of the grid? I want to be able to support copying and pasting of the contents and only use vertical and horizontal scroll bars on the grid to scroll the contents... is this possible?

Hi Neil,


Thanks for using Syncfusion Products.


We have created a sample to disable the scrolling of the grid contents while copy text using the mouse can be disable at load event using “enableTouchScroll” API. Please find the below code snippet.




    function onLoad(args) {


        this.model.scrollSettings.enableTouchScroll = false








Please refer the sample here: http://www.syncfusion.com/downloads/support/directtrac/129579/scrolling-1067812941.zip


Please let us know if you have any queries.

Thanks that worked in disabling the touch scroll.

However I changed it slightly and used it in this way.

    scrollSettings: { enableTouchScroll: false },
