Asked On February 25, 2016 10:19 AM UTC

Hi

I'm using SfDataGrid to display data and have disabled Editing & Deleting. I'm handling Enter & Deleted KeyUp event from vb.net code to perform stuffs

If user presses Enter Key, Selected Row Changes i.e. focus gets to next row and it gets selected. 

How can I prevent this.

Also when user double clicks on particular row I want to raise KeyUp Event with enter key. How Can I achieve this also.

Thanks in Advance

You can handle Enter key behavior by overriding ProcessKeyDown method in GridSelectionController classs.



this.dataGrid.SelectionController = new GridSelectionControllerExt(dataGrid);



public class GridSelectionControllerExt : GridSelectionController

{

    private SfDataGrid grid;


    public GridSelectionControllerExt(SfDataGrid datagrid)

        : base(datagrid)

    {

        grid = datagrid;

    }


    //overriding the ProcessKeyDown Event from GridSelectionController base class

    protected override void ProcessKeyDown(KeyEventArgs args)

    {          

        if (args.Key == Key.Enter)

        {            

            return;

        }

        base.ProcessKeyDown(args);

    }
}


You can refer the below KB for more information.

Also when user double clicks on particular row I want to raise KeyUp Event with enter key. How Can I achieve this also.
It is not possible to raise key up event when double clicking. But you can override double click in selection controller and do needed action.
Please let us know if you have any other queries.

Regarding Enter Key Behaviour

That did just what I want.

Regarding Mouse Doubleclick

What if I try to process mouse double click event in VB.Net code behind and raise Key up event and pass enter key (I did this in my windows form control) 

(I need to repeat this frequently in my application so I have prepared a control which inherits SfDataGrid)

    Private Sub Me_MouseDoubleClick(sender As Object, e As MouseButtonEventArgs) Handles Me.MouseDoubleClick
        OnKeyUp(New KeyEventArgs(Keyboard.PrimaryDevice, PresentationSource.FromVisual(Me), 0, Key.Enter))
    End Sub

When I double click mouse this code executes but I'm not understanding what is wrong here 

Thanks again

Hi Amit,

Your code is correct. Can you please let us know the problem you are facing with this code.

You can override GridSelectionContoller also to handler double click as like in the below code snippet also.

this.dataGrid.SelectionController = new GridSelectionControllerExt(dataGrid);


public class GridSelectionControllerExt : GridSelectionController

{

    public GridSelectionControllerExt(SfDataGrid dataGrid) : base(dataGrid)

    {


    }

    public override void HandlePointerOperations(GridPointerEventArgs args, RowColumnIndex rowColumnIndex)

    {

        if (args.Operation == PointerOperation.DoubleTapped)

            this.HandleKeyDown(new KeyEventArgs(Keyboard.PrimaryDevice, PresentationSource.FromVisual(this.DataGrid), 0, Key.Enter));


        else

            base.HandlePointerOperations(args, rowColumnIndex);

    }
}


Can you please let us know the problem you are facing. That will help us to provide better solution.

Thanks,
Sivakumar

Here is my code after updating as per suggestions 

Imports Syncfusion.UI.Xaml.Grid

Public Class GSLV
    Inherits SfDataGrid

    Public Event RefreshList()

    Dim ProcessKeys As Boolean

    Public Sub New()
        SetResourceReference(StyleProperty, GetType(SfDataGrid))
        Me.SelectionController = New GridSelectionControllerExt(Me)
    End Sub

    Public Property ProcessKeyUp As Boolean
        Set(value As Boolean)
            ProcessKeys = value
        End Set
        Get
            Return ProcessKeys
        End Get
    End Property


    Private Sub Me_KeyDown(sender As Object, e As KeyEventArgs) Handles Me.KeyDown
        If ProcessKeys Then
            Try

                If e.Key = Key.F5 Then : RaiseEvent RefreshList() : e.Handled = True
                ElseIf (SelectedItems.Count > 0) AndAlso (e.Key = Key.Enter Or e.Key = Key.Delete Or
                                                            e.Key = Key.F8 Or e.Key = Key.F9 Or
                                                            e.Key = Key.F11 Or e.Key = Key.F12) Then

                    Dim R As System.Data.DataRow = DirectCast(SelectedItem, System.Data.DataRowView).Row
   .
   .
   . Do Something
   .
                    e.Handled = True
                End If
            Catch ex As Exception : Throw New System.Exception(ex.Message, ex.InnerException) : Finally : e.Handled = True : End Try
        End If
    End Sub

    Private Sub Me_KeyUp(sender As Object, e As KeyEventArgs) Handles Me.KeyUp
        'If ProcessKeys Then
        '    Try
'
        '        If e.Key = Key.F5 Then : RaiseEvent RefreshList() : e.Handled = True
        '        ElseIf (SelectedItems.Count > 0) AndAlso (e.Key = Key.Enter Or e.Key = Key.Delete Or
        '                                                    e.Key = Key.F8 Or e.Key = Key.F9 Or
        '                                                    e.Key = Key.F11 Or e.Key = Key.F12) Then
'
        '            Dim R As System.Data.DataRow = DirectCast(SelectedItem, System.Data.DataRowView).Row
'    .
'    .
'    . Do Something
'    .
        '            e.Handled = True
        '        End If
        '    Catch ex As Exception : Throw New System.Exception(ex.Message, ex.InnerException) : Finally : e.Handled = True : End Try
        'End If
    End Sub

    Private Sub Me_MouseDoubleClick(sender As Object, e As MouseButtonEventArgs) Handles Me.MouseDoubleClick

    End Sub

End Class

Public Class GridSelectionControllerExt
    Inherits GridSelectionController

    Public Sub New(datagrid As SfDataGrid)
        MyBase.New(datagrid)
    End Sub

    Protected Overrides Sub ProcessKeyDown(args As KeyEventArgs)
        If args.Key = Key.Enter Then
            Return                                                                                                                                                                                                         'Event Triggered - 2
        End If
        MyBase.ProcessKeyDown(args)
    End Sub

    Public Overrides Sub HandlePointerOperations(args As GridPointerEventArgs, rowColumnIndex As RowColumnIndex)
        If args.Operation = PointerOperation.DoubleTapped Then
            Me.HandleKeyDown(New KeyEventArgs(Keyboard.PrimaryDevice, PresentationSource.FromVisual(Me.DataGrid), 0, Key.Enter))               'Event Triggered - 1
        Else
            MyBase.HandlePointerOperations(args, rowColumnIndex)
        End If
    End Sub

End Class


Events being triggered on mouse double click are as fellows

1. Me.HandleKeyDown(New KeyEventArgs(Keyboard.PrimaryDevice, PresentationSource.FromVisual(Me.DataGrid), 0, Key.Enter)) 
2.  If args.Key = Key.Enter Then Return (marked above)

Thus Mouse Double Click Event is handled in GridSelectionControllerExt Class and not transferred to key events in SfDataGrid

Thanks in advance

Hi Amit,

Thanks for the code snippet shared in the previous update. Please find the modified code snippet to achieve your requirement. Now OnKeyUp is triggered in when double clicking mouse as expected.

Sample:
http://www.syncfusion.com/downloads/support/forum/123198/ze/GridSelectionController-2072735055

Code snippet:

public class GSLV : SfDataGrid

{

    protected override void OnKeyDown(KeyEventArgs e)

    {

        base.OnKeyDown(e);

    }


    protected override void OnKeyUp(KeyEventArgs e)

    {

        Console.WriteLine("Enter triggered");

        base.OnKeyUp(e);

    }


    protected override void OnMouseDoubleClick(MouseButtonEventArgs e)

    {

        this.OnKeyUp(new KeyEventArgs(Keyboard.PrimaryDevice, PresentationSource.FromVisual(this), 0, Key.Enter));

        //base.OnMouseDoubleClick(e);

    }

}


public class GridSelectionControllerExt : GridSelectionController

{

    public GridSelectionControllerExt(SfDataGrid dataGrid) : base(dataGrid)

    {


    }


    public override bool HandleKeyDown(KeyEventArgs args)

    {

        if (args.Key == Key.Enter)

            return false;

        return base.HandleKeyDown(args);

    }


    public override void HandlePointerOperations(GridPointerEventArgs args, RowColumnIndex rowColumnIndex)

    {

        if (args.Operation == PointerOperation.DoubleTapped)

            return;

        else

            base.HandlePointerOperations(args, rowColumnIndex);

    }
}


Thanks,
Sivakumar

Hi Sivakumar R
I figured out another way of doing it
Here is code

    Protected Overrides Sub OnKeyDown(e As KeyEventArgs)
        MyBase.OnKeyDown(e)
    End Sub

    Protected Overrides Sub OnKeyUp(e As KeyEventArgs)
        If ProcessKeys Then
            If ProcessKeyPressed(e.Key) Then e.Handled = True
        End If
        MyBase.OnKeyUp(e)
    End Sub

    Protected Overrides Sub OnMouseDoubleClick(e As MouseButtonEventArgs)
        If ProcessKeys Then
            If ProcessKeyPressed(Key.Enter) Then e.Handled = True
        End If
        MyBase.OnMouseDoubleClick(e)
    End Sub

Private Function ProcessKeyPressed(e As Key) As Boolean
        Dim KeyProcessed As Boolean = False
        Try
                ' Do required stuff here and set KeyProcessed = True if processed key
        Catch ex As Exception : Throw New System.Exception(ex.Message) : End Try
        Return KeyProcessed
    End Function

Thanks for Your Help
