Object Type Path to AllowEdit


To enable data editing, assign the required editor to cells via a data field’s PivotGridField.FieldEdit property and/or the PivotGridControl.CustomCellEdit and PivotGridControl.CustomCellEditForEditing events.

The AllowEdit property, if set to false, prevents a cell editor from being invoked. In this mode, the cell editor only controls the representation of cell values in display mode. To prevent cells from being modified, you can open cell editors in read-only mode. See PivotGridFieldOptionsEx.ReadOnly to learn more.

To temporarily prohibit data editing for cells corresponding to all data fields, use the PivotGridOptionsCustomizationEx.AllowEdit property.
