    I wish to use the EnableHeaderCheckBox in my grid view but cancel its action under certain conditions (should not select/unselect all if a custom condition is true).  How can I do that?
    In the HeaderCellToggleStateChanged, there is no Cancel action in the GridViewHeaderCellEventArgs.

    Hello Claude,

    Thank you for writing.

    You can reach this kind of behavior by using the Enabled property of the CheckBox object of the GridCheckBoxHeaderCellElement:
    public partial class Form1 : Form
        public Form1()
        bool flag = false;
        void radGridView1_ViewCellFormatting(object sender, CellFormattingEventArgs e)
            GridCheckBoxHeaderCellElement headerCell = e.CellElement as GridCheckBoxHeaderCellElement;
            if (headerCell != null)
                headerCell.CheckBox.Enabled = flag;
        private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            var checkboxColumn = this.radGridView1.Columns["YourCheckBoxColumn"] as GridViewCheckBoxColumn;
            checkboxColumn.EnableHeaderCheckBox = true;
            radGridView1.ViewCellFormatting += radGridView1_ViewCellFormatting;
        private void radButton1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            flag = !flag;
            radButton1.Text = flag.ToString();

    I hope that this information is useful. Should you have further questions please do not hesitate to write back.
