copy contents of readonly cell

In my application I am using DataBinding similar to your sample Indexer Binder Demo.

The data includes CurrentValue and DefaultValue columns.
CurrentValue is the only column that can be edited.

I would like to be able to copy a cell value from the DefaultValue column and paste it into a cell in the CurrentValue. The DefaultValue has IsReadOnly=true and CellType="TextBlock" but later I might use CellType="DoubleEdit"
What am I missing to allow copy of a readonly cell?

Thanks for using Syncfusion Products.

We have analyzed the reported issue, By default when a column's IsReadOnly property is set to true then we cannot copy and paste a particular cell value from that column to another cell in the grid. If you want to copy and paste a cell value then you can set the IsReadOnly property to true.

Please let us know if this helps.

In my application I have a "current value" column that can be changed. There is also a "starting value" column that is read only. I want to allow the user to reset the selected cell's current value to the starting value.

I might just instead then have a menu item on the current value that will allow them to be reset to startingvalue.

Thank you for your sample.

Is there a way to do a similar copy, then paste into multiple cells
when you use GridDataControl and bind the data source?

I tried using
AllowSelection="Multiple" but did not see multiple cells being selected.

Also my application is very similar to the sample below:

We have analyzed your requirement with your sample. If you want to select more than one cell means please include the following code in you application.

Code snippet [C#]:

this.gdc.ListBoxSelectionMode = GridSelectionMode.None;

Now you can select multiple cells using Ctrl key.

Please let us know if this helps.
