Asked On August 27, 2003 03:40 PM

using this code: GridTextBoxControl tb; if (gridControl1[gridControl1.CurrentCell.RowIndex, gridControl1.CurrentCell.ColIndex].CellType == "TextBox") { tb = (GridTextBoxControl)gridControl1.CurrentCell.Renderer.Control; tb.SelectAll(); } does not work. Is there a better way of doing this? This runs on CurrentCellActivated with the purpose to highlight all text when a user switches cells

You can set the grid's ActivateCurrentCellBehavior property to SelectAll. This should select all the text for you when you click into a cell. You can do this from the designer or from code in Form_Load.

I cannot find the corresponding property for a GGC. Does it not support the behavior?

this.gridGroupingControl1.TableModel.Options.ActivateCurrentCellBehavior = GridCellActivateAction.SelectAll Works, but I would like to be able to specify this behavior on a Column level .. is that possible

Hi Sameer,

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion products.

You can set the SelectAll property for specific column through TableControlCurrentCellActivating event handler. Please refer to the following code.

void gridGroupingControl1_TableControlCurrentCellActivated(object sender, GridTableControlEventArgs e)
GridCurrentCell cc = e.TableControl.CurrentCell;
if (cc.RowIndex > 3 && cc.ColIndex > 0)
if (cc.ColIndex == 2)
this.gridGroupingControl1.TableModel.Options.ActivateCurrentCellBehavior = GridCellActivateAction.SelectAll;
this.gridGroupingControl1.TableModel.Options.ActivateCurrentCellBehavior = GridCellActivateAction.PositionCaret;
