    I want to achieve that the user can delete the selected item with the DEL key. I have set the 'CanUserDeleteRows' property to true but when I press the DEL key on a selected Item the Deleting, Delete and the KeyDown event aren't fired. I don't want a additional column with delete buttons or a Delete Button beside of the GridView.

    Any idea? My search wasn't successfull....

    Hi Alexander,

    Actually, the default behavior of the RadGridView is to delete the selected item on pressing the DEL button. Can you please update me what is the version of the controls that you are using? In the meantime, you can try subscribing to the PreviewKeyDown event of RadGridView and delete the selected item from the items collection:

    private void clubsGrid_KeyDown(object sender, KeyEventArgs e)
                if (e.Key == Key.Delete)
                    if (clubsGrid.SelectedItem != null)
