There is in fact no such “out-of-the-box” feature. However, it depends what you want to do. If you simply want to copy values to the clipboard, you can do something like the following :
private void CopyToClipboard()
// Create the DataObject that will be used during the copy/paste
// We will only add the plain text DataFormat.
// The cell values are separated by a TAB and the rows
// are separated by a carriage return.
// If you want to add other DataFormats (such as HTML),
// you will need to create it and add it to the DataObject using
// the SetData method with the appropriate DataFormat.
DataObject data = new DataObject();
string text = string.Empty;
// We will only copy the row(s)/cell(s) values of the selected rows
// which contain cells. Any other rows will be ignored.
foreach( Row row in gridControl1.SelectedRows )
if( row is CellRow )
foreach( Cell cell in ( ( CellRow )row ).Cells )
text += cell.Value.ToString() +
// Set our plain text DataFormat.
DataFormats.Text, text );
// Copy the row(s)/cell(s) values of the selected rows to the clipboard.
Clipboard.SetDataObject( data );
If you want drag and drop functionalities, we have a few samples you can look at which show how to do this.
