    I have a custom cell where I can have 2 states (read only and editable). The problem is that GridCellProps does not contain any information about column edit mode. Example 

          editable={false} // no access to "editable" from DropDownCell


    and something like this 

          cell={editable? DropDownCellEdit : DropDownCellReadOnly }


          cell={(props) => <DropDownCell {...props} editable={editable}/> }

    is not possible in my case.

    Any plans to add this information to GridCellProps ?

    Hello, Matej,

    Currently, this can be done by passing the editable value to the custom cell using this approach:

    This information is not passed as we use it internally when we render the cells. If the developer is using a custom cell, we assume that this information can be provided by the developer as extra props.

    Still, I will check with the team if we can pass all props to the custom cell, the remove the need to pass manually pass props.
