Me.gridDataBoundGrid1.Binder.EnableEdit = falseor
Me.gridDataBoundGrid1.TableStyle.ReadOnly = trueat the bottom of FormLoad, I do not see an empty filter row. How are you setting your readonly property? Are you setting it before you wire the filterbar? If so, you might try calling grid.IgnoreReadOnly = true before you wire the filterbar, and then set it back false afterwards.
