What version are you using? Using, and setting these properties, I am unable to cut this cell. this.gridControl1[2,4].Text = "1"; this.gridControl1[2,4].Enabled = false; this.gridControl1[2,4].ReadOnly = true;

I am using The problem is I have two such columns whose enabled and readonly property have been set in those ways. But when i cut the contents of one column are not cut but the contents of other column are cut. I am not able to figure out why?

Are these special columns, or are both default TextBox columns? Can you post a sample project showing this pronblem, or tell us how to see it in one of our samples?

Ok if you set the enbaled property to false and readonly property to true the contents are not cut. Say these properties are set for column 2. Now i cut row 4 and paste the contents on row 5 then the contents of column 2 are also pasted. What i want is the column 2 should not be affected by the paste operation. It should have the value it had before paste was performed.

In a GridControl, the default copy/paste support uses styles if they are on the clipboard. Copying and pasting styles will overwrite readonly cells. If you do not want this, there are several ways to handle it. The simplest way is to only support text pasting instead of both style and text pasting. You can do this by turninging a flag in the clipboardflags property. this.gridControl1.CutPaste.ClipboardFlags &= ~GridDragDropFlags.Styles; If you do this, the paste will stop when it comes to a readonly cell. If you want different behavior (like skip the cell and continue with the other cells), then you would handle teh PasteCelltext event. There you would check teh target cell and set e.cancel = true if it is readonly. private void gridControl1_PasteCellText(object sender, GridPasteCellTextEventArgs e) { if(e.Style.ReadOnly) e.Cancel = true; } If you need to paste style information (hence cannot turn off the styles flag as above), then you will have to handle ClipboardPaste and do all the work yourself.
