Property Value

Type Default Description
Boolean false

true if end-users are prevented from modifying the column’s cell values; otherwise, false.

Property Paths

You can access this nested property as listed below:

Object Type Path to ReadOnly
.OptionsColumn .ReadOnly


If the ReadOnly property is set to true, the cell values of columns cannot be modified by end-users. In this case cell editors can be invoked but end-users can only select and copy an editor’s content. This option is not in effect if the column’s OptionsColumn.AllowEdit or the View’s ColumnView.Editable option is disabled.

Cell values can still be modified in code using the ColumnView.SetRowCellValue method regardless of the ReadOnly property’s setting.
