Disabling Paste controls in a GridDataControl grid


I've made a grid using the GridDataControl class.  In this grid, I have a checkbox column and a couple of text columns.  Whenever the user highlights a row and presses Ctrl+V (paste), the application throws the following error:
Format Exception:  String was not recognized as a valid Boolean.  Method: Parse

It appears as though when even I press Ctrl+V it is attempting to pas the copied string into the first column, which happens to be a checkbox column that expects a Boolean value. 

Is there a way to disable pasting to a column?  This is occurring when the entire row is selected, but none of the text fields in particular are being edited.

Hi Jerad,

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support,

We have checked with reported issue in our side. But we could not get any exception when we try to CopyPaste the row with checkbox column, we are able to Paste to another row without any exception. So could you please share more details regarding this query and we have prepared a sample based on this, could you please modify the sample based on your requirement ? It would be helpful to analyze further regarding this query.

Sample: GridDataControl_CopyPaste.zip

I was able to reproduce it in the sample application provided.  Simply highlight any row and the press Ctrl+V.
