how to make some columns not editable when adding a new row in treegrid

I have a question about treegrid when adding a new row.
When user add a new row, I do not want them fill out all the columns. So user can only fill out some columns but not other columns. 
How can I achieve this?

Hi Harry,

We can disable specific columns from providing value during editing or adding a row by disabling the ‘AllowEditing’ property of the column object . And we have included this property in Essential studio release versoin volume 3 ,2015 . So we suggest you to upgrade to this Essential studio version .

You can download that setup from the below location

Please find the below code example for more details,

.EditSettings(eve => {




.Columns(co => {

        co.Field("StartDate").HeaderText("Start Date").AllowEditing(false).Add();


We have also prepared a sample for disable the specific editable columns. Please find the sample in the following location.
