Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

override ReadOnly : bool with get, set

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true to prevent the value of the field from being modified in edit mode; otherwise, false. The default is false.

Use the ReadOnly property to prevent the values displayed in a BoundField object from being modified. When a data-bound control is in edit mode, fields that are read-only are displayed as plain text, without any editing controls.

System_CAPS_noteNote

The ReadOnly property applies only to edit mode. To prevent fields from showing up in insert mode, use the InsertVisible property.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the ReadOnly property to prevent the values of the key field displayed in a BoundField object from being modified in edit mode.
