When I select an item in a RadTreeListView, press CTRL+C to copy, and paste into notepad, the results suggest to me that what the control is actually doing is calling the list item's ToString() method and placing the string result on the clipboard. The objects we display in our list view do not override ToString(), so the copied result is the return value from Object.ToString(), which is the name of the type.

Since we can't come up with a useful string representation of the objects we display, we'd rather just disable the copy operation, rather than have it put some not-very-useful string on the clipboard. Is there a way to do this?

Thanks,
Larry

Hello Larry,

You can cancel Copying event of the grid like so:

private void clubsGrid_Copying(object sender, Telerik.Windows.Controls.GridViewClipboardEventArgs e)
        {
            e.Cancel = true;
        }

All the best,
