Hi Mike,

If you are using GridCheckBoxColumn in your grid, the expected behavior is that the checkbox is disabled when you are not in edit mode. Please note that this is made that way by design and in general you should not be able to change the checkbox state when you are not in edit mode.

If you want your checkbox to be enabled in normal and in edit mode, what I could suggest is that you use GridTemplateColumn instead.

If further assistance is needed, please elaborate on your exact scenario and if possible, provide the markup of your grid.

thanks Konstantin

template column makes sense. just wanted to be sure there was not a "quicker" way.


But I still have a Q:

I do not want the user to be able to edit the checkbox in item view, but I DO want it to be darker and easier to see for the user so they can decide if they want to edit the row and change the checkbox.

see the attached file row2.jpg, the other fields are not editable but they still are "readable"

the checkbox IS enabled and still gray, when disabled it is very hard to see if the box is checked or not as in "A" in the attached image checkbox.jpg ???

again thanks for any help- (great product btw!)

Hi Mike,

In general, the way the checkbox is rendered is determined by the browser. However, you can add RadFormDecorator control on the page, which will allow you to customize the checkbox. Please note that you will have to create an image that you need to display as disabled checkbox:
<style type="text/css">
    .rfdInputDisabled{
        background:url(disabledCheckBox.png) left top no-repeat!important;
    }
</style>
*Just replace "disabledCheckBox.png" with the correspondent image that you will create.

Hope that helps.
