Visual Basic: DataGrid Control
Returns or sets a value indicating whether a user can modify any data in the DataGrid control.
object.AllowUpdate [= value]
The AllowUpdate property syntax has these parts:
|object||An object expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list.|
|value||A Boolean expression that determines whether the user can change data, as described in Settings.|
The settings for value are:
|True||The user can modify data in the DataGrid control|
|False||The user can't modify data in the DataGrid control|
When the AllowUpdate property is False, the user can still scroll through the DataGrid control and select data, but can't change any of the values; any attempt to change the data in the grid is ignored.
You can also use the Column object properties to make individual columns of the DataGrid control read-only, but the AllowUpdate property setting takes precedence over the column settings (without changing the column settings).
Note The Recordset object may not enable updates even if AllowUpdate is True for the DataGrid control; in this case a trappable error occurs when the user tries to change the record.
