Hi mahendra,

Greetings from Syncfusion support

Before we start providing solution to your query we would like to inform you about the paste functionality in the Grid. You can able to copy the content of a cell or a group of cells by selecting the cells and pressing Ctrl + C shortcut key and paste it to another set of cells by selecting the cells and pressing Ctrl + V shortcut key. To perform paste functionality, it requires the selection mode to be Cell, cellSelectionMode to be Box and also Batch Editing should be enabled. Please refer the below documentation for more information.

Documentation: https://ej2.syncfusion.com/angular/documentation/grid/clipboard#paste


We have checked your shared attachments, we cannot able to see what type of edit mode you are using in your application and also we have noted that you are not defined the isPrimarykey property in the column definition. Once you pasted your content and try to update the changes the primarykey is must be defined for performing CRUD actions. So please refer the above shared documentation and if you still face the issue, please share the below details,

1)          Share your requirement with detailed description.

2)          Share your exact requirement scenario in pictorial representation or video demonstration.

3)          Share your complete Grid rendering code (ts & html).

4)          Share your syncfusion package version.

Hi Mahendra,

We can understand the issue of not able to select and copy the text data of the grid row. We have validated the sample which you have provided but only the HTML file contains the data, the ts file contains no data. Can you please ensure the ts file. To proceed further we need following details.

  • Grid rendering sample for the grid in which the selecting and copying is making issue.

  • Syncfusion package version
