    We are using the RadSpreadsheet in one of our projects. Some of the cells will contain data that can be elaborated on. We are styling those cells to look like they contain hyperlinks and when the user clicks on the cell, an additional view is spawned with more information.

     What we have not been able to acheive is changing the cursor value to 'Hand' to be more consitent with the hyperlink paradigm.

     

    Any help is much appreciated.

    Hello,

    Unfortunately at this point it is not possible to change the cursor. I have included this functionality in our backlog and you can like and follow the item in our Feedback and Ideas portal, in order to be notified of any development.

    Thank you for your response, Anna. 

    Some of the cells in our spreadsheet will contain data that has additional information relevant to the user. By clicking on that cell, a new view will be spawned (using Prism MVVM InteractionRequest) with the additional information. To indicate this scenario to the user, we wanted the cell to appear as if it contained a hyperlink. This typically means:

    - text with a bright blue color

    - a thin blue underline

    - a cursor with a 'hand' and pointing finger

    We can get all of that in code behind with the exception of the cursor. I'm currently trying to insert a HyperlinkInfo object into the cell (which the RadSpreadsheet recognizes, and does indeed change the cursor to a hand - which means on some level it must be possible), but am having some minor challenges there as well...

    Hello,

    Regarding the issues you are facing with inserting the hyperlink, you can see my response in the thread you linked. As for changing the cursor, indeed, you are correct that at a certain level it is possible, but we do not have public API for this at this point.
