    Can a column, which is unlocked (locked:false) on load, be unlocked in code after grid has loaded?

    Hello Bradley,

    You could use the lockColumn and unlockColumn methods of the Grid API to achieve this.

    Hi Dim,

    I am using "2012.3.1315" version of kendo in my project. I am trying to use the lockColumn function. I am getting the error sayinglockColumn is not a function. I also tried to set the the property "locked:true" in column schema. It is also not working. so, I believe the kendo version is not supporting this feature. Is there any way I can get it work. (If possible I like to know where can I get the documentation for Kendo 2012 version). Any help is Appreciated.

    Hello Narendra,

    The locked columns functionality was introduced in Q1 2014, so if you want to take advantage of that functionality you should upgrade to a newer version.

    As an alternative you could render two identical Grids with the same dataSource and display the "locked" columns in the right Grid and the other columns in the left Grid. You could then link the scrollbar of the right grid to the left one.
