Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Grid

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Grid.v19.1.Core.dll


public bool ReadOnly { get; set; }
Public Property ReadOnly As Boolean

Property Value

Type Default Description


true to prevent an end-user from changing the column's values; otherwise, false.


If the column's ReadOnly property is set to true, its cell values cannot be modified by end-users. In this instance, cell editors can be invoked, but end-users can only select and copy their values. However, setting this property to true doesn't prevent cell values to be changed in code using the GridControl.SetCellValue method.
