I would like to know if theres a possibility to get a property like IsTextSelectionEnabled for Grid:GridHyperlinkColumn .
I would like to select the text of an Hyperlink column, and i guess theres is no such property. Is there a workaround like copying the tooltip?
I know that you can select the cell and then press control c, but this is not a great idea for people that dont use computers so much

Thanking you in advance,

Hi Brice, 

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support.  

SfDataGrid doesn’t have any property to enable selection for the hyperlink as per your requirement. From the provided details, we suspect that your requirement is to copy the hyperlink content to the clipboard. It is possible to get the value of the current cell in SfDataGrid and set it as the clipboard content. In the following code example we have copied the hyperlink content to the clipboard when the cell is tapped.  

Code example : 

this.dataGrid.CellTapped += DataGrid_CellTapped; 
private void DataGrid_CellTapped(object sender, Syncfusion.UI.Xaml.Grid.GridCellTappedEventArgs e) 
    if (e.Column.MappingName == "Country") 
        string text = e.Record.GetType().GetProperty(e.Column.MappingName).GetValue(e.Record).ToString(); 
        if (text.Length > 0) 

We have prepared a sample using the above code example and it is available in the following link for your reference. 

Please let us know if your require further assistance from us.  

Mohanram A.

I wanted to try your example, but i don't have the event CellTapped, only CurrentCellActivated, which is not triggered when the cell is selected
"SfDataGrid does not contain a definition for 'CellTapped' and no extension method...

Thank you for your help

Hi Brice,   
Thanks for the update.    
You have selected the platform as WPF, and SfDataGrid WPF contains the CellTapped event. Please refer the below screenshot and reference link.    
Please confirm us on the platform and the Syncfusion product version you are using.
