Cheers.

You can make Columns editable or non-editable but not rows.

This is mainly because the way datagrid renders rows.

Lets say you have a datagrid which can show 4 rows. When you have more then 4 rows, you get a scrollbar.

Lets assume you have 6 entries to display, two are outside the display area.

If it was possible to set rows as editable or non editable, this would happen:

1. You make the second row editable.
2. You can scroll your content and bring the entry you want to edit in the second row and edit it.

Which means its not logical to have a feature like that.

Hmmm, thats kinda sucky...
I got around it though..
I set it up to watch what row was selected, if it was one that isnt' meant to be edited it quickly turns the editable feature off, and vice versa.

Works pretty well...

Thanks for your help though.
