Restricting key hits in a cell !!

Hi I have a very simple Question . if I put a focus on a particular cell thru mouse and then click Delete then the value in the cell gets deleted . If I make that particular cell as disabled then in that case it works fine since I am not able to edit so question of deletion does not exists, but I can not make that cell as disabled as I have text in that cell which is not visible completely so i have to click in the cell and using that right arrow key I can see the text .So is there any way with which i can simply make use of the right arrow key and the left arrow key .just to scroll thru the cell. I hope I am able to make you understand the Problem. This is the code which i had used. Private Sub strategyPeriodGrid_CurrentCellControlKeyMessage(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridCurrentCellControlKeyMessageEventArgs) Handles strategyPeriodGrid.CurrentCellControlKeyMessage Dim keyCode As Keys If strategyPeriodGrid.CurrentCell.ColIndex = 1 Then keyCode = CType(e.Msg.WParam.ToInt32, Keys) And Keys.KeyCode If keyCode <> Keys.Right OrElse keyCode <> Keys.Left Then e.Handled = True e.Result = True End If End If End Sub

If you want to avoid clearing the cell''s contents when you press the Delete key, try setting the style.ReadOnly = true for that cell. Then I think you should be able to click the cell to activate it and use teh arrow keys without having to subscribe to teh CurrrentCellControlKeyMessage event.

Yes Clay but When I am making that cell as readonly then in that case that the right arrow and the left arrow key does not work , >If you want to avoid clearing the cell''s contents when you press the Delete key, try setting the style.ReadOnly = true for that cell.

Readonly normally does not affect the arrow key behavior. Here is a little sample. http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/user/uploads/GC_ReadOnlyArrowKeys_5414d88.zip Now when you get to the end of the word, and you press teh arrow again, it does move to teh next cell by default.
