How to prevent column from being highlighted when selecting the Fieldchooser?

To disable the column selection when right-clicking on the column header to display the FieldChooser popup, we need to use the SelectionChanging Event. Through this event we can customize the selection prevention as we like.


this.GridDataBoundGrid1.Model.SelectionChanging += new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridSelectionChangingEventHandler(Model_SelectionChanging);

void Model_SelectionChanging(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridSelectionChangingEventArgs e)


if (e.Reason == Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridSelectionReason.MouseDown && e.ClickRange.RangeType == Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridRangeInfoType.Cols

&& Control.MouseButtons == System.Windows.Forms.MouseButtons.Right)


e.Cancel = true;




Private Sub Model_SelectionChanging(sender As Object, e As Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridSelectionChangingEventArgs)

If e.Reason = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridSelectionReason.MouseDown AndAlso e.ClickRange.RangeType = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridRangeInfoType.Cols AndAlso Control.MouseButtons = System.Windows.Forms.MouseButtons.Right Then

e.Cancel = True

End If

End Sub
