By default, the ReadOnly and BrowseOnly properties are used to disable the edit mode in the grid. But these two properties have the following differences.


  • In the ReadOnly property, the whole grid or range of cells can be restricted from being edited, but in the BrowseOnly property the whole grid is restricted from being edited.










  • In the ReadOnly property, when the cell is clicked, the cursor is displayed in the cell, but in the BrowseOnly property there is no cursor inside the cell.

  • In the ReadOnly property, the filtering dropdown is enabled and filtering operation is performed to the grid, but in the BrowseOnly property, there is no filtering operation.
