This documentation topic describes legacy technology. We no longer develop new functionality for the GridControl and suggest that you use the new DataGridView control instead.

End-users can switch the grid to edit mode by double-tapping a data cell or tapping Edit Cell in a menu that appears when they touch and hold a data row. The GridControl.AllowEditRows property allows you to prevent end-users from editing cell values via the GridControl's UI. However, it has no effect if a row editor is invoked via the OpenEditor method.

To close a row editor, use the GridControl.CloseEditor method. When a row editor is closed, the GridControl.EndRowEdit event occurs.
