DataGrid.IsReadOnly Property

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the user can edit values in the DataGrid.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Controls
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation, http://schemas.microsoft.com/netfx/2007/xaml/presentation

public bool IsReadOnly { get; set; }
<object IsReadOnly="bool" .../>

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the rows and cells are read-only; otherwise, false. The registered default is false. For more information about what can influence the value, see DependencyProperty.

Set the IsReadOnly property to true to make all the cells in the DataGrid read-only. To make individual columns or cells read-only, set the DataGridColumn.IsReadOnly or DataGridCell.IsReadOnly properties. If a conflict exists between the settings at the DataGrid, column, or cell levels, a value of true takes precedence over a value of false.

If this property is set to true while the control is in editing mode, all pending edits are discarded.
