I dont think that you can disable an entire row.

Try using the protected attribute to conditionally disable all the columns.

Its the 'Protect' attribute of the datawindow.

for this purpose I am using following:

1. add column "col_flag" - it could be not in the display list
2. for rows that need to be protected set col_flag='A'
(it could be done in run time)
3. set condition for protect property as

This could be done for all columns or some of them.

4. the same way could be set MousePointer, Color etc
