    I have gridview also binded  with DataTable. In the end of the right side, i have a pencil image to edit  By default the gridview will not allow Editing.

    If i click the pencil image then the row should allow editing (that selected row only).

    How to do this?

    How to enable editing for the current row?

    Thank you for writing.

    You can do that by modifying the Row.Tag in the CommandCellClick event handler and use this Tag in the CellBeginEdit event to determine whether to allow edit or not. Here is an example:
    void radGridView1_CellBeginEdit(object sender, GridViewCellCancelEventArgs e)
        e.Cancel = !(e.Row.Tag == "AllowEdit");
    GridViewRowInfo saveRowInfo;
    void radGridView1_CommandCellClick(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (saveRowInfo != null)
            saveRowInfo.Tag = null;
        GridCommandCellElement cell = (GridCommandCellElement)sender;
        cell.RowInfo.Tag = "AllowEdit";
        saveRowInfo = cell.RowInfo;

    I hope this helps.
