DataGridViewRow.ReadOnly Property

Note: This property is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Gets or sets a value indicating whether the row is read-only.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

public override bool ReadOnly { get; set; }
/** @property */
public boolean get_ReadOnly ()

/** @property */
public void set_ReadOnly (boolean value)

public override function get ReadOnly () : boolean

public override function set ReadOnly (value : boolean)

Property Value

true if the row is read-only; otherwise, false.

Exception typeCondition

InvalidOperationException

The row is in a DataGridView control and is a shared row.

The ReadOnly property affects the DataGridViewCell.ReadOnly property of each cell in the row.

Setting this property has no effect if the value of the DataGridView.ReadOnly property is true.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the DataGridViewBand.ReadOnly property, which is nearly identical to the ReadOnly property of the DataGridViewRow class. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the DataGridViewBand class.

// Make the the entire DataGridView read only.
private void Button8_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
    foreach (DataGridViewBand band in dataGridView.Columns)
    {
        band.ReadOnly = true;
    }
}
