    Hi Srm,

    Your question does not seem to be directly related to RadControls for WinForms. Therefore, I would kindly ask you to address your question in the appropriate MSDN Forums.

    Generally, RadControls have the Enabled property that you can set to false in order to disabled them.

    I hope this helps.

    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team

    Hi Srm,

    If you are talking to a server (database or webservices) or similar, you have to implement security there first. Just disabling a control is not enough (it's nice though to show the user that she cannot change something, but there is nothing to stop people using an own client application to connect to your server and call every bit ot the functionality that the server exposes.
