Object Type Path to Editable
.OptionsBehavior .Editable


Set the Editable property to false to disable data editing using in-place cell editors and Edit Forms.

If the Editable option is true, and regular data editing mode (in grid cells) is active (see GridOptionsBehavior.EditingMode), you can use the following members to disable cell editors in certain columns:

If data editing via an Edit Form is enabled, the OptionsColumn.AllowEdit property and ColumnView.ShowingEditor event do not let you disable column editors. To accomplish this task, use the column’s OptionsColumn.ReadOnly property. To forbid display of an Edit Form according to your logic, you can handle the GridView.EditFormShowing event.
