How to stop the errors thrown when pasting larger clipboard contents in a GridDataBoundGrid?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: GridDataBoundGrid(Classic) |
Published Date: April 30, 2011 |

A IndexOutOfRangeException is thrown when trying to paste clipboard contents that are greater than the number of columns and rows that are available to accommodate the contents. To stop the exception, a condition check in the Model.PasteCellText handler will do good.


private void Model_PasteCellText(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridPasteCellTextEventArgs e)


if(e.RowIndex >= this.gridDataBoundGrid1.Model.RowCount)


MessageBox.Show("There is no enough rows to paste the rest of the contents");

e.Cancel = true;

e.Abort = true;




Private Sub Model_PasteCellText(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridPasteCellTextEventArgs)

If e.RowIndex >= Me.gridDataBoundGrid1.Model.RowCount Then

MessageBox.Show("There is no enough rows to paste the rest of the contents")

e.Cancel = True

e.Abort = True

End If

End Sub

Here is a sample that illustrates this:
