Property Paths

You can access this nested property as listed below:

Object Type Path to ReadOnly
.OptionsBehavior .ReadOnly


In read-only mode, cell editors can be invoked. However, end-users can only select and copy an editor’s content. The ReadOnly property enables the read-only status for the current View. To set the read-only status for individual columns, use the column’s OptionsColumn.ReadOnly property.

To prevent editors from being activated, disable the ColumnViewOptionsBehavior.Editable property.
