Copy and Paste Data into Grid

Frontend
Implemented
on 27 Mar 2019

I would like to be able to copy data from web page or Excel sheet and paste into data grid.


the use case is batch data entry.


Example: https://www.ag-grid.com/javascript-grid-clipboard/

 Paste from Clipboard 

 Paste to clipboard can only be done in the following ways:

  • Press keys Ctrl+V while focus in on the grid with a single cell selected. The paste will then proceed starting at            the selected cell if multiple cells are to be pasted.
  •  Press keys Ctrl+V while focus in on the grid with a range of cells selected. If the selected            range being pasted is larger than copied range, it will repeat if it fits evenly, otherwise it will just            copy the cells into the start of the range.

Hi George,

Thanks for the idea. I just didn't understand one thing. You're looking for a grid component that allows a copy paste feature, or are you looking to use an existing OutSystems component (and, if so, which one) with extended copy paste capabilities?

Hi,


A grid component that allows copy and paste.


The use case is for excel users who can copy multiple cells of text and post into grid rows in a single operation, rather than type one by one.

Im not after import excel feature as it is not intuitive. I want copy paste.

Hi George,

We released a data grid component, that supports such use case.

Try it out and let me know if it solved your use case.

Kind regards,

Great! I'll try. Thanks so much.
