i have a datagridcolumnstyle set up for my datagrid
this is the setup of the datagridcolumn that i do not want editable after it is filled

dim dgcDescription as DataGridTextBoxColumn
datagridtextboxColumn = new datagridtextboxColumn
datagridtextboxColumn.mappingName = "Description"
mytablestyles.gridcolumnstyles.add(datagridtextboxColumn)


i got the following sample from SYNCFUSION but i dont know how to implement the VB version and where to paste this.
i just need column1 to be non editable
------------------------------------------------------------------
You can do this by deriving a custom column style and overriding its virtual Edit member. Below is an override that will

prevent the cell in row 1 of the column from getting the edit focus. You can paste this code in the

DataGridDigitsTextBoxColumn sample to see it work.
//this override will prevent the cell in row 1 from getting the edit focus
 
protected override void Edit(System.Windows.Forms.CurrencyManager source, int rowNum, System.Drawing.Rectangle bounds, bool

readOnly, string instantText, bool cellIsVisible)

{
     if(rowNum == 1)
          return;
     base.Edit(source, rowNum, bounds, readOnly, instantText, cellIsVisible);
}
------------------------------------------------------------------


could someone please tell me where to paste this and i reckon this.
my datagrid is called dgSale.
it is filled from a dataset.

You need to create a new class which inherits from datagridtextboxColumn and paste the above code in your new class
