How to avoid selecting a particular column in GridDataControl?
GridDataControl allows you to select single or multiple records based on the value specified for the ListBoxSelectionMode property. By default GridDataControl does not avoids selecting any column, however you can achieve it in a different way. Using QueryCellInfo event you can able to get the index of the column(s) that you want to avoid selection. By setting the e.Style.Enable property as to ‘false’ for that column(s), you can deactivate the cells belonging to that column from being current cell. Thus you cannot select or edit that column.
Following code snippet example demonstrates how to avoid selection of the column with mapping name “EmpName”.
Here the index of the column with MappingName “EmpName” in the DataGrid is obtained in the variable index. Using this index the current position of that column in the view is resolved using the method ResolveVisiblecolumnIndexToPosition. This allows you to locate that column in cases such as grouping and when row header is enabled. Thus you can disable the selection of that column using the obtained resolvedIndex.
