I'm really hoping somebody can shed light onto why code that was working in an earlier version of RadGrid no longer works after updating to the latest version of Grid. This code was working fine before the update. Now, although it sets the Enables property as expected (and I see this in the console) the change is not rendered on the grid. Am I doing something wrong? Or did this functionality actually get broken? It was a very easy way to disable a row. I understand there are other ways to do this, but they require more code. Seems silly that this would be taken away and I'm hoping I am wrong. Thanks!
