    WPF RadGrid ClipboardCopyMode Row and Cell 

    Can we differentiate when we copy entire row or a single cell?


    For Row selection we need row values with headers. Sp using these properties we can include headers too ClipboardCopyMode="All" CopyingCellClipboardContent="


    For cell copying can we ignore the header?

    Hello Pradeep,

    One idea that comes to my mind is to handle the CopyingCellClipboardContent, Copying and Copied events in the following manner:

            private bool copyingWholeRow;
            private void clubsGrid_CopyingCellClipboardContent(object sender, GridViewCellClipboardEventArgs e)
                if (!copyingWholeRow && e.CellType == GridViewCellType.HeaderCell)
                    e.Cancel = true;
            private void clubsGrid_Copying(object sender, GridViewClipboardEventArgs e)
                var columnCount = this.clubsGrid.Columns.OfType<GridViewColumn>().Where(c => c.IsVisible).Count();
                if (this.clubsGrid.SelectedCells.Count % columnCount == 0)
                    copyingWholeRow = true;
                    this.clubsGrid.ClipboardCopyMode = GridViewClipboardCopyMode.All;
                    this.clubsGrid.ClipboardCopyMode = GridViewClipboardCopyMode.Cells;
            private void clubsGrid_Copied(object sender, Telerik.Windows.RadRoutedEventArgs e)
                copyingWholeRow = false;

    I've prepared a small sample project to demonstrate this approach.

    Please give this a try and let me know if a similar approach works at your end.
