I dont think that you can disable an entire row.

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

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
dw_list.Modify("column.Protect='0~tifcol_flag=~"A~",1,0)'")

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

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