I am using a Grid Grouping Control that is bound to a List. While I am editing a Cell content, I am able to copy the content using Ctrl + C, while pasting the data if I select a part of text in the cell and Paste (Ctrl + V) it does not paste the data, however, if nothing is selected it pastes fine. Is this a bug or is there a way to correct it? Also is it possible to show the normal context menu for Cut/Copy/Paste that we usually see in any .NET control like textBox?

Hi Arif,

is it possible to show the normal context menu for Cut/Copy/Paste that we usually see in any .NET control like textBox?
Yes, you need to set ContextMenu property to display the standard menu in a grid when you right clicked on the cell. Below are the codes:

//for showing the menu when right mouse button is clicked.
this.grid.ContextMenu = this.contextMenu1;

Regarding the Pasting Issue:
You can handle the TableControlCurrentCellKeyDown event of the grid and call the GridTextBoxCellRenderer.Paste method to paste text when the celltext has been selected. Here are the codes:

private void gridGroupingControl1_TableControlCurrentCellKeyDown(object sender, GridTableControlKeyEventArgs e)
if( e.Inner.Modifiers == Keys.Control
&& e.Inner.KeyCode == Keys.V )
GridCurrentCell cc = e.TableControl.CurrentCell;
if( cc.IsEditing )
GridTextBoxCellRenderer cr = cc.Renderer as GridTextBoxCellRenderer;
if( cr != null && cr.TextBox.SelectedText != string.Empty )
cr.TextBox.SelectedText = string.Empty;
cr.TextBox.SelectionLength = 0;

Best regards,
