How to capture function keys when the current cell is in active edit mode?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: GridControl |
Published Date: April 30, 2011 |

Tags: keyhandling

Description:

When the grid cell is not actively edited, the grid itself gets these keystrokes. In this case, you can use event handlers like grid.CurrentCellKeyDown and grid.KeyDown to catch the keys. When the current cell is actively being edited, the grid does not automatically catch these keys.

 

Solution

When the current cell is actively being edited, you can use the grid.CurrentCellControlKeyMessage to catch the function keys.

Refer to the following code examples.

C#

 

VB
