Can I copy a value to other cells by selecting one cell then dragging into another cell

I would like to recreate the capability that is in Excel where you can select as cell and a plus icon will appear then you can drag the value in the selected cell into other cells, either across columns or up or down within a column. Is this possible with any of the data grid controls? I looked through the samples in the Demos interface but could not find this capability. I am just getting started with my app and have not started coding yet, I am still in the design phase. I will be coding the app in Visual Basic.

Hi George,   

Thanks for using Syncfusion products. 

You can achieve your required feature by enabling the GridControl.AllowDrop property. 

this.gridControl1.AllowDrop = true; 
//Current cell behavior customization if needed 
this.gridControl1.ActivateCurrentCellBehavior = GridCellActivateAction.DblClickOnCell; 


Please let us know if you need any further details on this.
