Hi Sinha,

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support.

If allowEditing is set as false for a particular column, that column will be read only and the control will be in disable state while editing.

If you meant the invisible state as opacity of the disable cell, set “opacity” CSS for the read only column to change the appearance of disable cell. Please refer to the code example.


    .e-grid  .e-disable#GridCustomerID{





        . . .

        .Columns(col =>


             . . .

            col.Field("CustomerID").AllowEditing(false).HeaderText("Customer ID").Width(90).Add();

            . . .
