I'm trying to change the editSettings and toobar of a ejs-grid in script and it's not working..

        <ejs-grid id="grdTS" load="grdTS_Load" toolbar="@(new List<string>() { "Add", "Edit", "Delete", "Update", "Cancel" })" allowPaging="true"
            <e-data-manager url="/Officers/TimeSheet?handler=DataSource" updateUrl="/Officers/TimeSheet?handler=UpdateData"
                            insertUrl="/Officers/TimeSheet?handler=InsertData" adaptor="UrlAdaptor"></e-data-manager>
            <e-grid-editSettings allowAdding="true" allowDeleting="true" allowEditing="true"></e-grid-editSettings>

I'm just testing with a change event for a dropdown.  The code does run but nothing happens.  You can still edit the grid and the menu stays the same.

    function monthChange(args) {
        var gridObj = document.getElementById("grdTS").ej2_instances[0]
        gridObj.editSettings.allowEditing = "false"
        gridObj.toobar = "@(new List<string>() { "Add", "Cancel" })"

Hi Michael, 
Greetings from Syncfusion. 
You can achieve your requirement by setting the Boolean value to the editSettings.allowEditing property in JavaScript and assigning an array of string value for grid.toolbar property. Please refer to the below code example and documentation link for more information. 
<ejs-button id="disable" content="Disable"></ejs-button> 
<ejs-grid id="grdTS" dataSource="ViewBag.data" toolbar="@(new List<string>() { "Add", "Edit", "Delete", "Update", "Cancel" })" allowPaging="true" 
    <e-grid-editSettings allowAdding="true" allowDeleting="true" allowEditing="true"></e-grid-editSettings> 
        <e-grid-column field="OrderID" headerText="Order ID" isPrimaryKey="true" textAlign="Right" width="120"></e-grid-column> 
        .  .  . 
    document.getElementById('disable').addEventListener('click', function(args) { 
        var gridObj = document.getElementById("grdTS").ej2_instances[0] 
        gridObj.editSettings.allowEditing = false; 
        gridObj.toolbar = ["Add", "Cancel"];
