Disable the multiple range selection

To disable the multiple range selection of cells for a particular column in WinForms Grid, you need to cancel the SelectionChanging event. The following code explains about how to disable the selection for second column.


this.gridControl1.SelectionChanging += gridControl1_SelectionChanging
void gridControl1_SelectionChanging(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridSelectionChangingEventArgs e)
    //consider 2nd column as OrginalTextBox celltype.
    if (e.Reason == GridSelectionReason.MouseMove && e.ClickRange.Left == 2)
        e.Cancel = true;



Private Me.gridControl1.SelectionChanging += AddressOf gridControl1_SelectionChanging
Private Sub gridControl1_SelectionChanging(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridSelectionChangingEventArgs)
  'Consider 2nd column as OrginalTextBox celltype.
  If e.Reason = GridSelectionReason.MouseMove AndAlso e.ClickRange.Left = 2 Then
    e.Cancel = True
  End If
End Sub
