Grid Edition disabled on row, not on column


I'im working on a grid which, in case of a specific value of a cell in the row, wouldn't authorize to edit this row.

I could only find a way to allowEditing on column but not on row.

Is there a documentation or sample regarding this subject ? I'm working with ES5.

Hi David, 

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 

You can disable the editing for a particular row by using the actionBegin event of Grid based on requestType as beginEdit. We have prepared a sample for your requirement. Please find the below sample: 

Please get back to us if you need further assistance

Thanks for your answer.

Is there not an "allowEditing" like on columns but for rows ? If not, will there be in some future update ?

Hi David, 

Thanks for contacting us. 

Query: In the same column, some cells can be editable and some not. It all depends from the value of another cell in the same row. 
As per your requirement, we have created a sample for your reference. In the below sample, we need to bind actionBegin event, In that event based on the CustomerID value we can enable or disable editing for shipCountry column in Grid. 

Please check the below code example and sample for more information. 

var grid = new ej.grids.Grid({ 
        dataSource: window.orderDataSource, 
        editSettings: { allowEditing: true, allowAdding: true, allowDeleting: true, mode: 'Normal'}, 
        allowPaging: true, 
        pageSettings: { pageCount: 5 }, 
        toolbar: ['Add', 'Edit', 'Delete', 'Update', 'Cancel'], 
        actionBegin: actionBegin, 
        columns: [ 
                field: 'OrderID', isPrimaryKey: true, headerText: 'Order ID'                validationRules: { required: true, number: true }, width: 140 
                field: 'CustomerID', headerText: 'Customer ID', 
                validationRules: { required: true }, width: 140 
                field: 'ShipCountry', headerText: 'Ship Country', editType: 'dropdownedit', width: 150, 
                edit: { params: { popupHeight: '300px' } } 
    function actionBegin(args) { 
        if (args.requestType === 'beginEdit') { 
             // enable and disable editing for shipCountry column 
             this.columns[2].allowEditing = true; 
           } else { 
             this.columns[2].allowEditing = false;
