Property Value

Type Description

An object that contains appearance settings.


A row’s ReadOnly property allows you to make the row non-editable. To customize read-only row appearance settings, use the following properties:

  • ReadOnlyRow — specifies appearance settings applied to row headers.
  • ReadOnlyRecordValue — specifies appearance settings applied to cell values.

The default settings specify grayed-out appearance for read-only rows.

In the Vertical Grid, these appearance settings are only applied if the AllowReadOnlyRowAppearance option is enabled.

In the Property Grid’s Office view, the ReadOnlyRow settings are only in effect if the AllowRowHeaderReadOnlyAppearance option is enabled.

See the following topic for more information about appearance settings: Appearances.


The code below shows how to customize the read-only row color and enable the appearance settings.
