Copy Hierarchy Modes

Tree Grid provides support for a set of copy modes with CopyHierarchyMode property. The below are the type of filter mode available in Tree Grid.

  • Parent : This is the default copy hierarchy mode in Tree Grid. Clipboard value will have the selected records with its parent records, if the selected records not have any parent record then the selected record will be in clipboard.
  • Child : Clipboard value will have the selected records with its child record. If the selected records do not have any child record then the selected records will be in clipboard.
  • Both : Clipboard value will have the selected records with its both parent and child record. If the selected records do not have any parent and child record then the selected records alone are copied to clipboard.
  • None : Only the Selected records will be in clipboard.

To perform paste functionality, it requires the selection Mode to be Cell, cellSelectionMode to be Box and also Batch Editing should be enabled.

Limitations of Paste Functionality

  • Since the string values are not parsed to number and date type, so when the copied string type cells are pasted to number type cells then it will display as NaN. For date type cells, when the copied string format cells are pasted to date type cells then it will display as an empty cell.
