Standard Key Handlers?

Does the grid have already built-in handlers for common hot keys (CTRL-C,X,V,A, etc.) that can be turned on with one of the many "magic" properties or do I need to override OnKeyPress, and handle the key press event, respectively? If there is no such "magic" it would be a nice feature to have all common handlers available esp. since there is already a clip board handler class. Regards, Jens

The grid has support for copy, cut and paste throught ctl+C, ctl+X and ctl+V. It does not support ctl+A. To handle other keys, you could use this event, but you would need to check e.Msg.Msg as the event is raised for both KeyUp and KeyDown.
private void gridControl1_CurrentCellControlKeyMessage(object sender, GridCurrentCellControlKeyMessageEventArgs e)
	Keys keyCode = (Keys) ((int)e.Msg.WParam) & Keys.KeyCode;
	if( 0 != (keyCode & Keys.ShiftKey) || 0 != (keyCode & Keys.ControlKey))
		e.CallProcessKeyPreview = false;
		e.CallBaseProcessKeyMessage = false;

Great that works well. Even pastes correctly into an Excel spreadsheet. Now it would be nice to also support ctrl+A cuz then I wouldn''t have to do anything :) Thanks for your help. Jens
