    In This Topic

    You can use the default touch menu bar or touch strip to cut, copy, and paste cells. You can also customize the touch strip to provide additional options.

    Tap a selected range to display the touch menu bar strip.

    You can use the TouchStripOpening event to display a customized touch strip. You can also add menu items to the touch strip.
