Can't make DateTime fields not editable


Tried multiple combinations of these but always it gives me an editable datepicker
Two of my columns show read only fields that are set by server and user should only see them I can't make them readonly

Field is col.Field(model => model.Date)

Hi Customer, 
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 
This issue happens when we enable both AllowEditing(false) and EditType properties in Grid. This is not recommended way and we suggest you to disable the AllowEditing property for date column like as follows, 
Code example
         . . . 
        .Columns(col => 
            .. . 
            col.Field("OrderDate").HeaderText("Order Date").AllowEditing(false).Format("{0:MM/dd/yyyy}").Add(); 

Please refer to the Help documentation for more information, 

If you still face the same issue, then could you please provide following information? 
1)      Share the Grid code example. 
2)      Essential Studio version details. 
3)      Any script error thrown in console window while editing? 
Venkatesh Ayothiraman.

 .Columns(col =>
            col.Field(x => x.Id).IsPrimaryKey(true).IsIdentity(true).Add();
            col.Field(x => x.Name).Add();
            col.Field(x => x.Country).Add();
            col.Field(x => x.State).Add();
            col.Field(x => x.CreatedDate).AllowEditing(false).Add();
            col.Field(x => x.LastModifiedDate).AllowEditing(false).Add();

CreatedDate is still editable
