I am using GridDataBoundGrid and have my AllowSelection set to Row and AlphaBlend. I was wondering if there is a way to prevent the delete key from clearing the contents of a cell.

I would like to make it work when the user enters text. I don't want it to set the CellValue to null.

Hi Michael,

Handle the CurrentCellKeyDown(object sender, KeyEventArgs e). Below is some code snippet that handle the Delete key.

public void gridDataBoundGrid1_CurrentCellKeyDown(object sender, KeyEventArgs e)
if (e.KeyCode == Keys.Delete && !this.gridDataBoundGrid1.CurrentCell.IsEditing)
e.Handled = true;


Kindly take a look and let me know if this helps
