Property Value

Type Description

true if end-users can activate cell editors and modify their contents; otherwise, false.


A grd view embedded in a GridLookUpEdit control is not editable. Its Editable property is always false.

If a View is used within a standalone Grid Control, this property returns a value of the ColumnViewOptionsBehavior.Editable option. Use this option to specify whether the View’s data can be edited within the grid.

See the Non editable mode demo for a live example of a non-editable grid view.

gridView1.OptionsBehavior.Editable = false;
    XtraMessageBox.Show("The grid is editable");
    XtraMessageBox.Show("The grid is non-editable");
