How to resolve the issue of AddNewRecord not working while navigating the ReadOnly column using Tab key?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: GridDataBoundGrid(Classic)

In GridDataBoundGrid if a specific column is set to read only, it cannot be edited. The AddNewRecord for the entire grid would not be achieved excluding the readonly column.

To achieve AddNewRecords to grid except the readonly column, you need to restrict the current cell using CurrentCellStartEditing and CurrentCellActivated event for that particular column.


  //Event Handler
            this.gridDataBoundGrid1.CurrentCellStartEditing += gridDataBoundGrid1_CurrentCellStartEditing;
            this.gridDataBoundGrid1.CurrentCellActivated += gridDataBoundGrid1_CurrentCellActivated;
void gridDataBoundGrid1_CurrentCellActivated(object sender, EventArgs e)
            if(gridDataBoundGrid1.CurrentCell.ColIndex == 2)
        void gridDataBoundGrid1_CurrentCellStartEditing(object sender, CancelEventArgs e)
            //The edit mode for second column gets restricted.
            if(gridDataBoundGrid1.CurrentCell.ColIndex == 2)
                this.gridDataBoundGrid1.CurrentCell.IsModified = true;
                e.Cancel = true;



'Event Handler
Me.gridDataBoundGrid1.CurrentCellStartEditing += gridDataBoundGrid1_CurrentCellStartEditing
Me.gridDataBoundGrid1.CurrentCellActivated += gridDataBoundGrid1_CurrentCellActivated
Private Sub gridDataBoundGrid1_CurrentCellActivated(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
 If gridDataBoundGrid1.CurrentCell.ColIndex = 2 Then
 End If
 End Sub
Private Sub gridDataBoundGrid1_CurrentCellStartEditing(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As CancelEventArgs)
 'The edit mode for second column gets restricted.
 If gridDataBoundGrid1.CurrentCell.ColIndex = 2 Then
  Me.gridDataBoundGrid1.CurrentCell.IsModified = True
  e.Cancel = True
 End If
End Sub
