Type: Feature Request
RadVirtualGrid: Split up RadVirtualGridElement.Paste into two parts or make GetHtmlData/GetTextData/GetCsvData protected.

RadVirtualGridElement.Paste does not support pasting into new rows.

I want to override RadVirtualGridElement.Paste to allow to to paste into new rows. Except when I do so, the methods to retrieve information from the clipboard (GetHtmlData/GetTextData/GetCsvData ) are private.

So now I have one request, two solutions:

  • Make GetHtmlData/GetTextData/GetCsvData  protected so I can call them when I override Paste.
  • Or split up the Paste method into two sub-methods:
    • One sub-method to retrieve the information from the clipboard which will result in a list of list of strings (like: GetClipboardData())
    • The second sub-method to do the actually Paste the list of list of strings into the grid (like: Paste(List<List<string>> data)). Of course this sub-method must be virtual.
