Can't copy the cell text

Hi Team,


In our application we are using a Ignite UI for JQuery Data Grid. If we have a selector cell or row as a feature, we are not able to select the cell text. Can you guys please help us.

    Hello Raja,

    After investigating this further, I have determined that when Selection feature is enabled the text in the cells could not be selected out of the box. However, what I could suggest as a workaround is to bind a method to the created event of the grid which could look as follows:

    $(document).on("igcontrolcreated", "#grid", function (evt, ui) {



            ui.owner.element.find("tbody td").unbind("mousedown");


    Below I am attaching a sample, demonstrating the described behavior. Please test it on your side and let me know if you need any further information regarding this matter.
