How can I prevent the grid cell from allowing paste?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: GridControl |

You have to handle the PasteCellText event of the GridControl and cancel the event that prevents the cells from allowing paste. This event is not triggered when the current cell is in Edit mode.



When you want to avoid pasting into a cell that is in Edit mode, you can make use of the CurrentCellControlKeyMessage event. In the following code, the paste operation is specified by the shortcut key, Ctrl+V.
