To further explain, the behavior happens when adding a new row, via button event, to the gridview (with AddNewBoundRowBeforeEdit enabled and AllowAddNewRow disbaled). The new row is pinned to the top, with editing enabled. When copying row data from one row to this new row, pasting the row data only works if the grid view is on the last page. Pasting Individual cells do not have this problem and any cell is enabled for edit while viewing any page of the grid view.

So I'm left wondering why is this even an issue in the first place. Not even automatically pasting valid row data, via button event that adds the new row, works.

Is there a setting available somewhere that can override this behavior? Or explanation as to why this is the case?

Let me know if more information is needed.


I've put together a small app using a pre-existing demo provided by Telerik. Note that due to some other behavior, pasting into the new row on last page removes said row from view.  Ignore that behavior.

Hi, Paul,

Please have in mind that the paste operation is not supported in the new row. We already have a similar feature logged in our feedback portalYou can track its progress, subscribe for status changes and add your comments on the following link: 


However, since the AllowAddNewRow property is set to false in your project, I suspect that by "new row" you don't mean the following row:

WinForms RadGridView New Row

I would like to note that when RadGridView is used in bound mode, it is necessary to add the new records to the applied DataSource collection, not to add unbound rows to the grid. However, pasting into a pinned row seems to behave weird. I have also noticed that the RadGridView.ClipboardPasteMode property is set to Enabled. Make sure that you set it to GridViewClipboardPasteMode.EnableWithNotifications.

While working on this thread, I have identified two scenarios that can be considered as issues with the paste operation in RadGridView. 

I have logged them in our feedback portal by creating a public thread on your behalf. You can track their progress, subscribe for status changes and add your comments on the following link




I have also updated your Telerik points.

I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.
