    I have to disable and enable cells of the grid under the same columns based on date validations. Is it possible to  do that in Kendo Grid?

    I am new to Kendo UI and not getting proper examples for doing this.

    P.s.Any proper example explaining this will be really  helpful.

    Hello Dynamo,

    For achieving the desired functionality you should handle the Edit event and use the model to retrieve the relevant information from the other cells and if the cell should not be edited, you could use the grid closeCell method.

    Following is a dojo example with such conditional editing:
    Hope this helps.

    I know this post is old but how can this be achieved if gridmode = "inline" I cannot find a way to prevent edits.

    Hello Adam,

    A possible approach would be to add a disabled attribute to the required input based on a condition:

    editable: "inline",
    edit: function(e) {
          if (e.model.age > 32) {

    Here is the previously sent example with the above modification.

    Alternatively, you can try the approach discussed in this SO thread.
