How to select the row while clicking on checkbox cell in WinForms GridGroupingControl?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: GridGroupingControl

Row selection

To select the row while clicking on the checkbox, the TableControlCheckBoxClick event can be handled. The SetSelected method can be used to select or deselect the row.

this.gridGroupingControl1.TableControlCheckBoxClick += new GridTableControlCellClickEventHandler(gridGroupingControl1_TableControlCheckBoxClick);
private void gridGroupingControl1_TableControlCheckBoxClick(object sender, GridTableControlCellClickEventArgs e)
    style = (GridTableCellStyleInfo)e.TableControl.GetTableViewStyleInfo(e.Inner.RowIndex, e.Inner.ColIndex);
    currentRecord = style.TableCellIdentity.DisplayElement.GetRecord();
    bool checkStatus = (style.Text == string.Empty || style.Text == "false");


Private Me.gridGroupingControl1.TableControlCheckBoxClick += New GridTableControlCellClickEventHandler(AddressOf gridGroupingControl1_TableControlCheckBoxClick)
Private Sub gridGroupingControl1_TableControlCheckBoxClick(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As GridTableControlCellClickEventArgs)
 style = CType(e.TableControl.GetTableViewStyleInfo(e.Inner.RowIndex, e.Inner.ColIndex), GridTableCellStyleInfo)
 currentRecord = style.TableCellIdentity.DisplayElement.GetRecord()
 Dim checkStatus As Boolean = (style.Text = String.Empty OrElse style.Text = "false")
End Sub


CurrentCellKeyDown event can be used for selecting the particular row by using space key on the checkbox.

this.gridGroupingControl1.TableControlCurrentCellKeyDown += gridGroupingControl1_TableControlCurrentCellKeyDown;
private void gridGroupingControl1_TableControlCurrentCellKeyDown(object sender, GridTableControlKeyEventArgs e)
    GridStyleInfo style = e.TableControl.CurrentCell.Renderer.CurrentStyle;
    // Make a selection while check the checkbox using key navigation
    if (e.Inner.KeyCode == Keys.Space && style.CellType == GridCellTypeName.CheckBox)
        e.TableControl.RaiseCheckBoxClick(e.TableControl.CurrentCell.RowIndex, e.TableControl.CurrentCell.ColIndex, MouseEventArgs.Empty as MouseEventArgs);


Private Me.gridGroupingControl1.TableControlCurrentCellKeyDown += AddressOf gridGroupingControl1_TableControlCurrentCellKeyDown
Private Sub gridGroupingControl1_TableControlCurrentCellKeyDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As GridTableControlKeyEventArgs)
 Dim style As GridStyleInfo = e.TableControl.CurrentCell.Renderer.CurrentStyle
 ' Make a selection while check the checkbox using key navigation
 If e.Inner.KeyCode = Keys.Space AndAlso style.CellType Is GridCellTypeName.CheckBox Then
  e.TableControl.RaiseCheckBoxClick(e.TableControl.CurrentCell.RowIndex, e.TableControl.CurrentCell.ColIndex, TryCast(MouseEventArgs.Empty, MouseEventArgs))
 End If
End Sub
