When setting this property, this DataGridViewBand instance is a shared DataGridViewRow.

The ReadOnly property affects the DataGridViewCell.ReadOnly property of each cell in the band. For example, if the ReadOnly property of a DataGridViewRow changes, then the DataGridViewCell.ReadOnly property of all cells in the row will change.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the ReadOnly property to disable editing for an entire DataGridView. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the DataGridViewBand class.
