How to control the mouse button that affects the selection of cells in WinForms GridControl?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: GridControl



By default, left and right mouse buttons affect the selection of cells in the GridControl.  You can control the mouse buttons by using the SelectCellsMouseButtonsMask property.


You can set the SelectCellsMouseButtonsMask property in order to control the behavior of the mouse buttons when selecting cells.


//Controls selection on Mouse button on Form load.
this.gridControl1.Model.Options.SelectCellsMouseButtonsMask = MouseButtons.Left;


'Controls selection on Mouse button on Form load.
Me.gridControl1.Model.Options.SelectCellsMouseButtonsMask = MouseButtons.Left

This prevents the right button from affecting any of the selection.
