Hi,

I would like to know  if there is a way to select an individual cell/cells in a RadGridView rather than an entire row and if so, how one goes about it.

Thanks in advance, Steve

Hi,

Thanks for the swift reply. Is there any chance that you could attach that demo or an extract of it to this thread please as I can't seem to get the XBAP to run properly in any of the browsers that I have installed.

Thanks, Steve

Hello Steve Evans,

All QSF examples are available ofline as well  as a part of the beta download. If you download and install the beta , you can find the cell selection example inside the demo application.

Hi,

Thanks for the update, I have looked at the cell selection demo now. The behaviour of the grid when SelectionUnit="Cell" is kind of what I want in so far as the user can select a single cell or multiple ones. However, I would like to be able to restrict the user to be able to select a single or multiple cells but only within a single column at any one time NOT within any column. Is there any way to do this?

Also, what I am now trying to understand is how I can work the info available when the selected cells are changed - how can I associate the selected cells with the underlying bound items in in the item source of the grid? Additionally, I am using an MVVM approach and wish to utilise bindings into my VM where possible.

Any info would be great. Thanks in advance.

Steve

Hi Steve Evans,

For now we do not have plans to a allow restrictions on cell selection but we will consider your feedback.

In regards to the second question, each GridViewcellInfo exposes a property called Item which refers to the data item of a particular cell. This blog post demonstrates how you can use MVVM to control the SelectedItems of RadGridView. Maybe something similar can be created to sync SelectedCells.

I have updated your Telerik points.
