Name Description

Corresponds to a Boolean value of true.


Corresponds to a Boolean value of false.


The value is determined by the current object’s parent object setting (e.g., a control setting).


End users can edit data if the DataViewBase.AllowEditing property is set to true and the DataViewBase.NavigationStyle property is set to GridViewNavigationStyle.Cell.

Individual columns provide the AllowEditing property, allowing the default behavior specified by the view to be overridden. Set this property to true or false to override the default behavior. This can be useful when it is required to prevent an end user from changing values of individual columns.

If the AllowEditing property is set to Default, the ability to edit data is controlled by the DataViewBase.AllowEditing property.


Set the ColumnBase.ReadOnly to true to prevent end users from editing column values, but allow end users to select and copy cell text.
