AutoFill

AutoFill Feature allows you to copy the data of selected cells and paste it to another cells by just dragging the autofill icon of the selected cells up to required cells. This feature is enabled by defining EnableAutoFill property as true.

@using Syncfusion.EJ2.Blazor.Grids

<EjsGrid DataSource="@Orders" EnableAutoFill="true" AllowSelection="true" Toolbar="@(new List<string>() { "Add", "Update","Cancel" })" AllowPaging="true">
    <GridSelectionSettings CellSelectionMode="CellSelectionMode.Box" Mode="SelectionMode.Cell" Type="SelectionType.Multiple"></GridSelectionSettings>
    <GridEditSettings AllowAdding="true" AllowDeleting="true" AllowEditing="true" Mode="EditMode.Batch"></GridEditSettings>
    <GridColumns>
        <GridColumn Field=@nameof(Order.OrderID) HeaderText="Order ID" IsPrimaryKey="true" TextAlign="TextAlign.Right" Width="120"></GridColumn>

@code{
    public List<Order> Orders { get; set; }

    protected override void OnInitialized()
    {
        Orders = Enumerable.Range(1, 75).Select(x => new Order()
        {
            OrderID = 1000 + x,
            CustomerID = (new string[] { "ALFKI", "ANANTR", "ANTON", "BLONP", "BOLID" })[new Random().Next(5)],
            Freight = 2.1 * x,
            OrderDate = DateTime.Now.AddDays(-x),
        }).ToList();
    }

    public class Order
    {
        public int? OrderID { get; set; }
        public string CustomerID { get; set; }

}

The following represents Autofill in grid Grid Autofill

  • If EnableAutoFill is set to true, then the autofill icon will be displayed on cell selection to copy cells.
  • It requires the selection Mode to be Cell and CellSelectionMode to be Box and also Batch Editing should be enabled.

Limitations of AutoFill

  • Since the string values are not parsed to number and date type, so when the selected string type cells are dragged to number type cells then it will display as NaN. For date type cells, when the selected string type cells are dragged to date type cells then it will display as an empty cell.
  • Linear series and the sequential data generations are not supported in this autofill feature.

Paste

You can able to copy the content of a cell or a group of cells by selecting the cells and pressing Ctrl + C shortcut key and paste it to another set of cells by selecting the cells and pressing Ctrl + V shortcut key.

}
  • If EnableAutoFill is set to true, then the autofill icon will be displayed on cell selection to copy cells.
  • It requires the selection Mode to be Cell and CellSelectionMode to be Box and also Batch Editing should be enabled. To perform paste functionality, it requires the selection Mode to be Cell and CellSelectionMode to be Box and also Batch Editing should be enabled.

Limitation 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.
