    Dear Forum Members ,


    I have a requirement to copy paste the Excel content to Radgrid view , Here few of the columns of the grid are Read only , i tried out the Below options , Any suggestions appreciated .

    In Rad gridview is set the below properties

    ClipboardCopyMode="Cells" ClipboardPasteMode="AllSelectedCells,Cells" SelectionMode="Extended" SelectionUnit="Cell"


    and in the behaviour have the PastingCellClipboardContent event to check on the data and map it accordingly , issue here is that for read-only columns this is not fired , please do suggest

    Hi Anand,

    Such behavior would be expected when the columns are Read Only.  However, you can utilize the Pasting/Pasted events to achieve your requirement. When the Pasting event is fired, make all columns in the RadGridView writeable so that you can paste the new content and when the Pasted event fires you can switch them back to read-only. I have attached a sample for your reference. Of course, you will need to apply some additional logic but the approach should be viable.
