If user is entering text value in this grid cell and selects some portion of writen text and press DELETE button, he expects to delete the selected portion of text.

if he has not selected some portion of text and press DELETE button then whole written text should be deleted.

For eg. he types 'AMOLCHOUDHARI', he may select HARI by shift button and DELETE or he may want to delete whole text by pressing DELETE button.

Please help!

Hi Amol,

You can handle the TableControlCurrentCellKeyDown event and set ControlText to string.Empty when the DELETE key is pressed. Below is a code snippet

void gridGroupingControl1_TableControlCurrentCellKeyDown(object sender, GridTableControlKeyEventArgs e)
if (e.Inner.KeyCode == Keys.Delete)
e.Inner.Handled = true;
e.TableControl.CurrentCell.Renderer.ControlText = string.Empty;

Best regards,
