How to disable edit GridCheckBoxColumn cell?

But this doesn't work for GridCheckBoxColumn (CurrentCellBeginEdit is not fired). Is there a way how to implement it for this column type?

Hi Ondrej, 
Thank you for using Syncfusion controls. 
By default, editing related events is not triggered for GridCheckBoxColumn in SfDataGrid, so you can achieve your requirement “Disable editing cells and change their background color” by using converter in GridTemplateColumn with CheckBox. 
Please refer the below code example 
<syncfusion:GridTemplateColumn MappingName="Conformed"> 
            <CheckBox IsChecked="{Binding Conformed}"  
                      IsEnabled="{Binding Conformed, Converter={StaticResourcecheckBoxConverter}}" /> 
        <Style TargetType="syncfusion:GridCell"> 
            <Setter Property="Background" Value="{Binding Conformed, Converter = {StaticResource cellbackgroundconverter}}" /> 
public class CheckBoxConverter : IValueConverter 
    public object Convert(object value, Type targetType, object parameter,CultureInfo culture) 
        if (value == null) 
            return false; 
        return true; 
    public object ConvertBack(object value, Type targetType, object parameter,CultureInfo culture) 
        throw new NotImplementedException(); 
Let us know whether this helps also if you need any further assistance on this.
