Is it possible to copy-paste (CTRL+C/V) Excel multiline cells to a gridcontrol and keep the linebreaks ?

As it is now each line from the Excel cell is pasted into its own grid cell...

Ex.: The Excel cell could be:


that is, 1 cell with 3 lines. Performing a CTRL+C in Excel and a CTRL+V in the gridcontrol, results in three separate grid cells:




Is it possible to do a copy-paste that keeps the contents in one cell ?

Hi Thomas,

You could try handling ClipboardPaste event as shown in the following code:

gridControl1.ClipboardPaste+=new GridCutPasteEventHandler(gridControl1_ClipboardPaste);
private void gridControl1_ClipboardPaste(object sender, GridCutPasteEventArgs e)
GridCurrentCell cc=this.gridControl1.CurrentCell;
if (cc.HasCurrentCell)
DataObject data = (DataObject) Clipboard.GetDataObject();
string s = (string)data.GetData(DataFormats.Text);
this.gridControl1[cc.RowIndex, cc.ColIndex].Text = s;
e.Handled = true;

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

I think that did the trick :-)

Thank you, Thomas.
