I am not sure I understand exactly what you need to be readonly. To make a column readonly, you can set this.gridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.Columns["SomeColumn"].ReadOnly = true; If you want to restrict your user to only selecting values in the combobox list, then on the style object where you are setting, style.CellType = "ComboBox", style.DataSource = ???, etc., also set style.DropDownStyle = GridDropDownStyle.Exclusive.

I think original poster has the same problem as me. I have a combobox readonly column created in GGC. It seems to be working fine - I cannot type anything in it (dropdown button is hidden). However double-clicking the cell causes values to change. I can probably override double-click event, but may be there is a better way? Below is the sample of how I create 1 column. gridColumnDescriptor.MappingName = column; gridColumnDescriptor.HeaderText = captionText; gridColumnDescriptor.ReadOnly = true; gridColumnDescriptor.Appearance.AnyRecordFieldCell.BaseStyle = ""; gridColumnDescriptor.Appearance.AnyRecordFieldCell.CellType = "ComboBox"; gridColumnDescriptor.Appearance.AnyRecordFieldCell.DataSource = dataSource; gridColumnDescriptor.Appearance.AnyRecordFieldCell.DisplayMember = displayMember; gridColumnDescriptor.Appearance.AnyRecordFieldCell.ValueMember = valueMember; gridColumnDescriptor.Appearance.AnyRecordFieldCell.HorizontalAlignment = GridHorizontalAlignment.Left;

In, there is a property you can set to avoid this behavior. GridComboBoxCellModel cellModel = grid.Model.CellModels["ComboBox"] as GridComboBoxCellModel; cellModel.AllowDoubleClickChangeSelectedIndex = false; In earlier versions, you need to derive the combobox celltype. When double clicked on a combobox cell, the OnEditPartMouseDown method of the combobox cell renderer is called that replaces it with the next item in the dropdown. To cancel it, for now you have to override the OnEditPartMouseDown deriving the cell renderer and cellmodel. Here is the modified sample that does it for read-only cells.
