    as the title suggests I have the following issue on jqxGrid component: setting the configuration “editable: false” you can delete the contents from the cells with the combination CTRL + X and copy (CTRL + C) and paste (CTRL + V) to another cell overwriting the contents. This also causes problems in the export phase as the content is exported with the changes.
    To replicate this behavior, just create a grid setting editable: false and use the key combinations (CTRL + X, CTRL + C, CTRL + V) to modify the contents of the cells.
    I’m experiencing this issue with Firefox, Chrome, IE11 and Edge.

    For convenience I created this simple fiddle to test the problem.

    How can I solve this issue?



    Hi Silvio,

    We have a DataGrid property called “clipboard”. You can set it to false in order to turn off Ctrl+C, Ctrl+X, Ctrl+V

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the workaround but this is not a solution in my case because I need to allow the copy from grid cells but not the edit. If I set “clipboard: false” I can’t copy cell content in any way. How can I allow cell content copy and not the edit?

    Have a good day,
