I'm looking for something like the StaticCell type from the GridControl. So I want to be able to select cells, but I do not want the user to be able to select text in a cell. When they click on a cell it should not enter edit mode.

I can disable edits by making the GridColumnDescription readonly, but you can still click in a cell and it allows you to select text.

Interesting, I managed to do it but have a follow on question: So I did this:
private void _gridGroupingControl_QueryCellStyleInfo(object sender, GridTableCellStyleInfoEventArgs e)
    e.Style.CellType = "Static";

Which isn't ideal. It was pure chance that I thought the StyleInfos might still exist, so how do I define and associate them? How are they different to the GridColumnDescriptors? They seem to have similar stuff in them.

Sorry, last spam, still need answer. Setting it to static does what I want for the cell, but also disables any other formatting I applied via the table style and so on. Which I guess is logical. So what is the bit of the style that actually makes the text static?

Ok, solved that too. It seems the GridColumnDescriptors appearance  has cell infos for lots of different types of cell, so

desc3.Appearance.RecordFieldCell.CellType = "Static";
makes my column static for record field cells which are the ones I want.
