prevent combobox cell from dropping down

I have a databound grid which contains a GridBoundColumn which I initialize with a CellType of "ComboBox". I then set the DataSource, DisplayMember, and ValueMember in order to display the proper value in the cell. For certain rows, however, I need to set the cells to readonly which I do by setting e.Style.ReadOnly = True in the grid.model.QueryCellInfo routine. Although this prevents the user from selecting a different choice it does not prevent the combobox from displaying the drop down. I tried setting e.Style.CellType = "Static" for these cells in PrepareViewStyleInfo, however this caused the cell to no longer display the DisplayMember. Is there a way to retain the properties of the ComboBox cell while dynamically preventing it from showing the dropdown?

You can handle the grid.CurrentCellShowingDropDown event and cancel it if the currentcell is readonly.
private void gridControl1_CurrentCellShowingDropDown(object sender, GridCurrentCellShowingDropDownEventArgs e)
	GridCurrentCell cc = this.gridControl1.CurrentCell;
	if(this.gridControl1[cc.RowIndex, cc.ColIndex].ReadOnly)
		e.Cancel = true;
