Hi guys,

is it possible to select individual cells of grid instead of full rows? If yes how can I use this?

Hi Peter,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion Products.

Yes, it is possible to select the individual grid cells by enabling ExcelEditMode property in Grid. The Essential Grid provides support for Excel Like Edit for all editable fields. This feature offers cell in-line editing, cell selection, row selection. Please refer the code snippet below to enable ExcelEditMode.

runat="server" DataSourceCachingMode="ViewState" AutoFormat="Office 2003 Blue"
ExcelEditMode="true" ExcelEditAutoUpdate="true">

Please refer the sample below which illustrates selecting individual grid cells.


Also please find the documentation for ExcelEditMode.


We appreciate your patience and please let me know if this helps you.

Hi Rekha,

I tried it and works, but it is not what I had in mind. I just need to select a cell (without the ability to edit it) and get its value. I just hoped it could be done without any serious JavaScript hacking, because I'm kinda new to web development (and Javascript).
If there is some easy way to achieve this it would be useful to know.


PS: The link to the documentation for ExcelEditMode doesn't work.

Hi Peter,

You can access the currently selected row using the client side event ClientSideOnRecordClick, which loads with currently selected row in GridGroupingControl using Row property. Also you can access a particular column's value using its GetValue method. Please refer the code snippet below to achieve this.


Please refer the sample below which illustrates above.

We are sorry for providing you wrong sample links in the previous update, please refer the updated links from below .

Thank you for the answer, it looks very promising. When I have the time, I'll try it, and get back to you (probably tomorrow, now I have other stuff to do).
