Hello, I need some help with the readonly property, because i'm using this in execution time like this:

 Me.grdActividades.Model.ColStyles("Cantidad").ReadOnly = True 

but in some moment i want that this column be editable again
but i used all these option listed bellow and nothing works the column continues readonly

 Me.grdActividades.Model.IgnoreReadOnly = True
 Me.grdActividades.Model.ColStyles("Cantidad").ReadOnly = False

Can you help in this issue?

Hi Ale,

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support.

To edit the contents of the read only cell, set the Binder.InternalColumns.ReadOnly property value as true. Please refer to the below code example,

Code Example:

//Set the Readonly property for perticular column 

this.gridDataBoundGrid1.Binder.InternalColumns["City"].ReadOnly = true;
this.gridDataBoundGrid1.Binder.InternalColumns["City"].ReadOnly = false;

//To edit the content of the ReadOnly cell on its Activation
this.gridDataBoundGrid1.CurrentCellActivating += gridDataBoundGrid1_CurrentCellActivating;

void Model_QueryCellInfo(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridQueryCellInfoEventArgs e)


    if(e.ColIndex ==3)


        e.Style.ReadOnly = false;

        e.Handled = true;
