Hi David,

Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion Products.

I was able to see the issue while copying a range of cells and pasting at the bottom of grid. It occurs when the pasting range is less than the copied range in grid. It is the default behavior in bounded grids. If you would like to avoid this exception, you can handle some condition check in ClipboardPaste event and paste accordingly.

Please refer to the following code handled in ClipboardPaste event.

void Model_ClipboardPaste(object sender, GridCutPasteEventArgs e)
int top1 = -1;
int left1 = -1;
int bottom1 = -1;
int right1 = -1;
foreach (GridRangeInfo range in e.RangeList)
top1 = range.Top;
left1 = range.Left;
bottom1 = range.Bottom;
right1 = range.Right;
int row = bottom1 - top1 + 1;
int col = right1 - left1 + 1;
int row1 = this.gridDataBoundGrid1.Model.RowCount - this.gridDataBoundGrid1.CurrentCell.RowIndex;
int col1 = this.gridDataBoundGrid1.Model.ColCount - this.gridDataBoundGrid1.CurrentCell.ColIndex;
GridRangeInfoList list1 = new GridRangeInfoList();
if (row > row1)
while (row > row1 + 1)
bottom1 -= 1;
list1.Add(GridRangeInfo.Cells(top1, left1, bottom1, right1));
e.RangeList = list1;
row -= 1;
if (col > col1)
while (col > col1 + 1)
right1 -= 1;
list1.Add(GridRangeInfo.Cells(top1, left1, bottom1, right1));
e.RangeList = list1;
col -= 1;
GridData setdata = null;
int rowCount = 0;
int colCount = 0;
this.gridDataBoundGrid1.Model.DataExchange.CopyCellsToDataObject(out setdata, e.RangeList, true, GridDragDropFlags.Styles, out rowCount, out colCount);
DataObject data = new DataObject(setdata);

This checks for the range of pasting range and copied range. If the paste range is less than the copied range, it cancels the pasting. Else, it copies as normal. This avoid throwing exception.

I commented out this.gridDataBoundGrid1.UseRightToLeftCompatibleTextBox = true , then i be able to compile the sample.

It works. The exception disapears.

Only thing is how can I paste multiple rows to the end ? I am using Syncfusion 4.2 .

best regards,

Hi David,

By default, the cells can be copied to clipboard and pasted in grid. As the griddataboundgrid is bounded one, pasting of large range in range of cells such that there are no more rows in grid to accomodate it, raises exception. The code which i provided in the ClipboardPaste event in previous update along with sample check for this and allow pasting only when there is enough area in grid to accomodate the copied cell contents. The additional rows cannot be added with this grid as this may lead to entry of unnecessary records in binded datasoure.

Please let me know if you have any further concerns.
