How to edit a RichText cell in GridControl?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: GridControl |
Published Date: April 30, 2011 |
Last Revised Date: May 28, 2019

By default, the RichText cell control in the library allows you to edit richtext via a dropdown panel. It does not allow you to edit the text in place. You can derive the GridRichTextBoxCellModel and GridRichTextBoxCellRenderer classes to use an embedded RichTextBox in the cell to do active editing.

 

Creating CellModel

Refer to the following code to create the CustomCellModel.

C#

public class InPlaceRichTextCellModel : GridTextBoxCellModel
{
    private RichTextBox rtb;
    public InPlaceRichTextCellModel(GridModel grid)
 : base(grid)
    {
 rtb = new RichTextBox();
 rtb.ScrollBars = RichTextBoxScrollBars.None;
 rtb.Location = new Point(-1000, -1000);
 rtb.Visible = false;
    }
    private InPlaceRichTextCellRenderer renderer = null;
    public override GridCellRendererBase CreateRenderer(GridControlBase control)
    {
 renderer = new InPlaceRichTextCellRenderer(control, this);
 return renderer;
    }
    protected override Size OnQueryPrefferedClientSize(Graphics g, int rowIndex, int colIndex, GridStyleInfo style, GridQueryBounds queryBounds)
    {
 //Do not resize col width...
 //  'in versions >= 2.0.6.0, use WinFormsUtils.MeasureSampleWString instead of GridCellModelBase.MeasureSampleWString
 // Size clientSize = new Size(this.Grid.ColWidths[colIndex], WinFormsUtils.MeasureSampleWString(g, style.GdipFont).Height);
 Size clientSize = new Size(this.Grid.ColWidths[colIndex], GridCellModelBase.MeasureSampleWString(g, style.GdipFont).Height);
 rtb.Width = clientSize.Width - style.BorderMargins.Left - style.BorderMargins.Right - this.ButtonBarSize.Width; 
 if (Grid.ActiveGridView == null || !Grid.ActiveGridView.CurrentCell.HasCurrentCellAt(rowIndex, colIndex)
    || Grid.ActiveGridView.CurrentCell.StaticDrawing)
 {
    if(style.CellValue != null)
    { 
  rtb.Rtf = style.CellValue.ToString();
    }
    else
    {
  rtb.Rtf = @"{\rtf1\ansi\ansicpg1252\deff0\deflang1033\viewkind4\uc1\pard\f0\fs17\par}";
    }
 }
 else
    rtb.Rtf = ((RichTextBox)this.renderer.TextBox).Rtf;
    //Insert \par to go to the next line.
    rtb.SelectionLength = 0;//rtb.TextLength;
    rtb.SelectionLength = 0;
    rtb.SelectedRtf = @"{\rtf1\ansi\ansicpg1252\deff0\deflang1033\viewkind4\uc1\pard\f0\fs17\par}";
    int height =  rtb.GetPositionFromCharIndex(rtb.TextLength).Y  + style.BorderMargins.Top + style.BorderMargins.Bottom + rtb.SelectionFont.Height / 2;
          return new Size(this.Grid.ColWidths[colIndex], height);
 }
}

 

VB

  MyBase.New(grid)
 rtb = New RichTextBox()
 rtb.ScrollBars = RichTextBoxScrollBars.None
 rtb.Location = New Point(-1000, -1000)
 rtb.Visible = False
 End Sub
 Private renderer As InPlaceRichTextCellRenderer = Nothing
 Public Overrides Function CreateRenderer(ByVal control As GridControlBase) As GridCellRendererBase

 rtb.Width = clientSize.Width - style.BorderMargins.Left - style.BorderMargins.Right - Me.ButtonBarSize.Width
 If Grid.ActiveGridView Is Nothing OrElse (Not Grid.ActiveGridView.CurrentCell.HasCurrentCellAt(rowIndex, colIndex)) OrElse Grid.ActiveGridView.CurrentCell.StaticDrawing Then

 End If
    'Insert \par to go to the next line.
    rtb.SelectionLength = 0 'rtb.TextLength;
    rtb.SelectionLength = 0
    rtb.SelectedRtf = "{\rtf1\ansi\ansicpg1252\deff0\deflang1033\viewkind4\uc1\pard\f0\fs17\par}"
    Dim height As Integer = rtb.GetPositionFromCharIndex(rtb.TextLength).Y + style.BorderMargins.Top + style.BorderMargins.Bottom + rtb.SelectionFont.Height \ 2
    Return New Size(Me.Grid.ColWidths(colIndex), height)
 End Function
End Class

 

Creating CellRenderer

The following code is used to create the custom CellRenderer.

C#

public class InPlaceRichTextCellRenderer : GridTextBoxCellRenderer 
{
    //Used for in-place editing.
    GridTextBoxControl activeRichTextBox;
    RichTextBox staticRichTextBox;
    //Used to display context menu for active edit control.
    //Public; so you can modify it.
    public ContextMenu RtbContextMenu;
    public InPlaceRichTextCellRenderer(GridControlBase grid, GridCellModelBase cellModel)
 : base(grid, cellModel)
    {
 SupportsFocusControl = true;
 //Removes the button.
 //this.Model.ButtonBarSize = new Size(1,1);
 activeRichTextBox = this.TextBox as GridTextBoxControl;//new GridTextBoxControl(this);
 staticRichTextBox = new RichTextBox();
 activeRichTextBox.BorderStyle = BorderStyle.None;
 staticRichTextBox.BorderStyle = BorderStyle.None;
       //activeRichTextBox.TextChanged += new EventHandler(activeRichTextBox_TextChanged);
 RtbContextMenu = new ContextMenu(new MenuItem[]
         {
        new MenuItem("Copy", new EventHandler(copyClick)),
        new MenuItem("Paste", new EventHandler(pasteClick)),
        new MenuItem("-"),
        new MenuItem("Change Font", new EventHandler(fontClick)) 
         });
 
 activeRichTextBox.ContextMenu = RtbContextMenu;
 RtbContextMenu.Popup += new EventHandler(contextMenu_Popup);
    }
       #region Context menu handlers . . .
             #endregion
  #region helper methods for the renderer class . . . 
  #endregion
  #region base class overrides . . .
  #endregion
}

 

VB

Public Class InPlaceRichTextCellRenderer
 Inherits GridTextBoxCellRenderer
 'Used for in-place editing.
 Private activeRichTextBox As GridTextBoxControl
 Private staticRichTextBox As RichTextBox
 'Used to display context menu for active edit control.
 'Public; so you can modify it.
 Public RtbContextMenu As ContextMenu
 Public Sub New(ByVal grid As GridControlBase, ByVal cellModel As GridCellModelBase)
  MyBase.New(grid, cellModel)

{
     RtbContextMenu.MenuItems[0].Enabled = CanCopy();
     RtbContextMenu.MenuItems[1].Enabled = CanPaste();

 End If
End Sub

 

Helper methods for the renderer class

The following code is used to create helper method.

C#

//Used to set cell changes flag.

{
 if (control.Parent != Grid || !control.Visible)
 {
    control.Location = new Point(10000, 10000);
          control.CausesValidation = false;
    control.Anchor = AnchorStyles.None;

Event overrides OnDraw

To handle drawing on cell.

C#

protected override void OnDraw(Graphics g, Rectangle clientRectangle, int rowIndex, int colIndex, GridStyleInfo style) 
{
    Rectangle textRectangle = RemoveMargins(clientRectangle, style);
    if (CurrentCell.HasCurrentCellAt(rowIndex, colIndex) && 
 HasControlValue && ShouldDrawFocused(rowIndex, colIndex) && CurrentCell.IsEditing)
 {
   // Position current grid.
   activeRichTextBox.Bounds = textRectangle;//clientRectangle;
   activeRichTextBox.BackColor = style.BackColor;
         if(!activeRichTextBox.Focused)
  activeRichTextBox.Focus();
 }
 else
 {
    string rtf;
    if (CurrentCell.HasCurrentCellAt(rowIndex, colIndex) && CurrentCell.IsModified && HasControlValue)
    rtf = ControlValue.ToString();
 else
    rtf = style.Text;
          Rectangle clipBounds = GetCellBoundsCore(rowIndex, colIndex, true);
    Color backColor = Color.FromArgb(255, style.Interior.BackColor);
          textRectangle = new Rectangle(textRectangle.X + 1, textRectangle.Y, textRectangle.Width - 3, textRectangle.Height);   
 //in versions >=  2.0.6.0, use
 //RichTextPaint.DrawRichText(g, staticRichTextBox, rtf, Grid.PrintingMode, Grid.GridBounds, textRectangle,

Adding CellModel

C#

this.gridControl1.CellModels.Add("InPlaceRTB", new InPlaceRichTextCellModel(this.gridControl1.Model));

 

VB

Me.gridControl1.CellModels.Add("InPlaceRTB", New InPlaceRichTextCellModel(Me.gridControl1.Model))

 

Assigning CellType

C#

GridStyleInfo style = this.gridControl1[2,2];
style.CellType = "InPlaceRTB";

 

VB

Me.gridControl1.CellModels.Add("InPlaceRTB", New InPlaceRichTextCellModel(Me.gridControl1.Model))
