It is possible to prevent editing a specific cell, a column or a row in TreeGrid using beginEdit client side event. Editing actions from toolbar edit, context menu edit and mouse click edit can be cancelled using the beginEdit event.

The below code example explains how to prevent the edit action on a specific cell in TreeGrid

<div id="TreeGridContainer" style="height:400px;width:100%"></div>    
<script type="text/javascript">
$(function () {
dataSource: projectData,
beginEdit: function (args) {
                     //To cancel Edit action for Particular row or column
if (args.data.index == 3 || args.columnIndex == 2)
args.cancel = true;
//To cancel the Edit for Particular cell
else if (args.data.index == 4 && args.columnIndex == 3)
args.cancel = true;
