How to copy the selected records to the clipboard in WinForms GridGroupingControl?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: GridGroupingControl

Clipboard operation

To copy the selected record, use the ClipboardCopy event. The selected row can be obtained by using the CurrentRecord property. The record values can be obtained by using the GetValue method. The retrieved data can be stored in the clipboard using the SetDataObject method.


Code snippet



this.gridGroupingControl1.TableModel.ClipboardCopy += TableModel_ClipboardCopy;
private Record copiedRecord;
void TableModel_ClipboardCopy(object sender, GridCutPasteEventArgs e)
    String value=string.Empty;
    copiedRecord = this.gridGroupingControl1.Table.CurrentRecord;
    foreach (GridVisibleColumnDescriptor column in this.gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.VisibleColumns)
        value += copiedRecord.GetValue(column.Name).ToString()+"\t";
    Clipboard.SetDataObject(new DataObject(value),true);
    e.Handled = true;



Private Me.gridGroupingControl1.TableModel.ClipboardCopy += AddressOf TableModel_ClipboardCopy
Private copiedRecord As Record
Private Sub TableModel_ClipboardCopy(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As GridCutPasteEventArgs)
      Dim value As String=String.Empty
      copiedRecord = Me.gridGroupingControl1.Table.CurrentRecord
      For Each column As GridVisibleColumnDescriptor In Me.gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.VisibleColumns
            value &= copiedRecord.GetValue(column.Name).ToString()+Constants.vbTab
 Next column
      Clipboard.SetDataObject(New DataObject(value),True)
      e.Handled = True
End Sub
