I really have two questions: The first is as described above. I really have no need for the tool bar other than for entering cell comments, so I would like to know if there is a way to invoke that functionality with a double click. Also, I am replacing a Windows Desktop Application that does allow the users to double click to add comments so if I cannot do this in Kendo UI, it will be a behavior change for the users.

Secondly, can comment data be bound to the data source so that when I do a load or submit the database Comment field is updated along with all the other data?

Hi Daniel,

Thank you for the details provided.

The Kendo UI Spreadsheet is implemented by design to work as MS Excel.

Double-click in a cell will fire the select event and will start the edit Mode.

In order to implement your custom behavior, I would recommend using the "Select" Event handler:

Setting a comment to a cell programmatically could be achieved with the "comment" method:

I hope this information helps. If any further information or assistance is needed, do not hesitate to contact me and the team.

Kind Regards,
