Hi
I need following functionality:
When user press a button I iterate all childrows checking the values in cells and if those values are not ok i pop out a Message.box warning the user. Then I want to enable him to change the incorrect cell value, therefore I need to make that cell editable. I use following code:

Me.RadGridView.Rows(i).ViewTemplate.AllowEditRow = True
Me.RadGridView.Rows(i).ViewTemplate.Rows(0).Cells(0).BeginEdit()
Me.RadGridView.PerformLayout()
Me.RadGridView.BeginEdit()

The cell stays readonly.
Thank you in advance!

Hello Ljubo Žižić,

Calling BeginEdit method of the desired cell should work if RadGridView is not in ReadOnly mode. Please check whether the ReadOnly property of RadGridView is set to false. Maybe a better option is to cancel the editing when handling CellBeginEdit event. Here is a sample:

void radGridView1_CellBeginEdit(object sender, GridViewCellCancelEventArgs e) 
    if ((bool)this.radGridView1.CurrentRow.Cells["Checkbox"].Value == false
    { 
        e.Cancel = true
    } 

If you continue to experience the issue, please send us your application and we will try to locate the problem.

I am looking forward to your reply.
