    I want only some of columns to be editable in my RadGrid. I have GridEditCommandColumn, GridBoundColumns (for them I dont want to be editable) and GridTemplateColumns (they need to be editable). Is that possible and how?

    For columns that you do not want to be editable, simply set the ReadOnly property on the columns to True. This will prevent them from going in to "edit mode" when a row is edited in your grid.

    Hope that help!

    Hi Katarina,

    You may also try the following code snippet to prevent editing for the GridBoundColumn in code behind.

    protected void RadGrid1_PreRender(object sender, EventArgs e) 
            foreach (GridColumn col in RadGrid1.MasterTableView.RenderColumns) 
                if (col.ColumnType == "GridBoundColumn"
                    GridBoundColumn boundCol = (GridBoundColumn)col; 
                     boundCol.ReadOnly = true

    I have a Grid whose values are populated by data source and I want to edit the cells of a particular column so that the table gets updated in the database. The above suggestion setting Read Only doesn't seem to work now. Could you please provide me with any other solution.
