Asked On October 17, 2011 12:27 PM UTC

I have a column which is set visible = false, but in dialog edit mode the column is visible.

Can you please resolve?

.Column(column =>{column.Add(p => p.Id).Visible(false).AllowEditing(false);........

Hi Balu,

Thank you for using Syncfusion products.

Query #1 : Field Visible while editing

Step #1 :AllowEditing property is used to make the editing false for particular field. Please refer to the following code snippets:

@{ Html.Syncfusion().Grid('SampleGrid')
. . .
.Column(col =>
. . .

col.Add(P => P.CustomerID).AllowEditing(false).HeaderText('Customer ID'); // set AllowEditing as false

. . .

Step #2 : If you want to hide the particular field from editing, then we can achieve the requirement in OnActionSucess event.

Sample code :

For your convenience, we have prepared the sample and the same can be downloaded from the following link :

Writing hardcoded javascript functions is not a great way to handle something like this.
The grid rendering should support MVC data annotation attributes to show/hide columns.
The IMetadataAware interface should be considered.
