How to prevent the selection while pressing right-click in WPF DataGrid (SfDataGrid)?

Platform: WPF |
Control: SfDataGrid
Tags: selection

You can prevent selection when right clicking in WPF DataGrid (SfDataGrid) by customizing the SelectionController and overriding the ProcessPointerPressed method.

Refer the below code example in which the row selection for SfDataGrid is skipped when the IsRightButtonPressed property is true.

WPF

protected override void ProcessPointerPressed(MouseButtonEventArgs args, RowColumnIndex rowColumnIndex)
{
    if (args.ChangedButton == MouseButton.Right)
    {
        args.Handled = true;
    }
    else
        base.ProcessPointerPressed(args, rowColumnIndex);
}

UWP

this.datagrid.SelectionController = new GridSelectionControllerExt(datagrid);
public class GridSelectionControllerExt : GridSelectionController
{
    public GridSelectionControllerExt(SfDataGrid dataGrid)
        : base(dataGrid)
    { }
    protected override void ProcessPointerPressed(PointerRoutedEventArgs args, RowColumnIndex rowColumnIndex)
    {
        var properties = args.GetCurrentPoint(DataGrid).Properties;
        if (properties.IsRightButtonPressed)
        {
            args.Handled = true;
        }
        else
            base.ProcessPointerPressed(args, rowColumnIndex);
    }
}
