Prevent the grid cell or column

In GridControl, you can use the grid’s SelectionChanging event to cancel a selection depending upon the criteria that you have specified.


void gridControl1_SelectionChanging(object sender, GridSelectionChangingEventArgs e)
   //prevent cell from selection
   //prevent column from selection



Private Sub gridControl1_SelectionChanging(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As GridSelectionChangingEventArgs)
   'prevent cell from selection
   If e.Range.Contains(GridRangeInfo.Cell(2,2)) Then
   End If
   'prevent column from selection
   If e.Range.IntersectsWith(GridRangeInfo.Col(3)) Then
   End If
End Sub



C#: Prevent the cell for part of the selection
