It seems like this should be easy, but I have searched the knowledge base, help files, and forums without finding the answer :)

How can I prevent a specific ROW from being dragged, if the AllowDragSelectedRows is set to True. This is in a GridControl, not a bound grid. I want to lock certain rows so that they cannot be moved, and allow others to move.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Jeugenides ,

This can be achieved by handling the MouseDown event of the Grid. In that event, you need to set the AllowSelectedRows property to false for the required row in a grid. You can use the following code snippet to achieve this.

private void gridControl1_MouseDown(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
GridControl grid = sender as GridControl;
Point pt = new Point(e.X,e.Y);
int row,col;
if( grid.PointToRowCol( pt,out row,out col))
if( row == 4 && col == 0)
grid.AllowDragSelectedRows = false;
grid.AllowDragSelectedRows = true;

Best regards,
