Hi,

This is just a suggestion: setting GridView.MasterGridViewTemplate.AllowAddNewRow to false when selecting the gridview as readonly.

I cannot really imagine a situation where you would allow a user to insert a record but not be able to update it.

I only recommend this because I could not find the aforementioned property in the properties tab. It would be nice if this property was listed there but that's just me being nitpicky.

Lastly, could please describe how I can go about having a set color for every other row? I would like to have alternating colors for the rows similar to that of an ASP.NET GridView.

Thanks for the help,

Michael

Hello Michael,

Thank you for the suggestions.

We modeled RadGridView to act like the standard MS DataGridView. When the ReadOnly property is set to true the DataGridView still shows the "Add New Row".

We will consider exposing the AllowAddNewRow property in RadGridView for our upcoming release.

The best way to display alternating rows is to modify an existing theme. You can also do it through code by
using the RowFormatting. Refer to the following code snippet:

this.radGridView1.RowFormatting += new RowFormattingEventHandler(radGridView1_RowFormatting); 
void radGridView1_RowFormatting(object sender, RowFormattingEventArgs e) 
    if (e.RowElement.IsOdd) 
    { 
        if (!e.RowElement.IsCurrent) 
        { 
            e.RowElement.BackColor = Color.FromArgb(0xF0, 0xF0, 0xF0); 
        } 
        else 
        { 
            e.RowElement.BackColor = Color.FromArgb(202, 238, 254); 
        } 
    }
