cell & input keyboard

I use a GridControl for which i set these options:

grid.Model.TableStyle.ReadOnly = true;
grid.Model.TableStyle.Enabled = false;

So each cell cannot be edited and when a cell is selected, the underlying text is not selected. That's what i want.

But by doing that, i disabled the keyboard and i cannot move the current cell selection with the direction keys.

Is there a way to resolve this predicament?

Hi Puthirak,

Thanks for using Syncfusion products.

We have another property CellType. We can disable the selection and edit option and it enables the navigation by setting the value as "Static" in GridControl. Use the below code

grid.Model.TableStyle.CellType = "Static";

Please download the sample from the below location.


Let us know if you have any questions.

With Regards,
Dhinesh Pandiyan
