Hi guys 'n gals,

Appart from a DataGridView, what is the best component for me to use to achieve the following:


[Title       ]  [Your name    ]
[Address] [52 here place]
[Gender  ] [Male               ]


Basically, I want to create a form, but I want it to look like a DataGridView without the left column and top row, which allows you to select multiple columns/rows. I also want to set it so you cannot change the value in all cells in a specified column.

I have looked at something called iGrid by 10tec, but would really prefer not having to purchase additional components, if possible...

So if somebody could recommend something to me, or tell me how to customize DataGridView to do what I am after, that would be great!


Cheers!

You can use a DataGridView and just disable the functionality you don't want.  For example if you don't want the rowHeader then on the DataGridView set the RowHeadersVisible property to False.  If you want a column to not be editable then in the Columns collection of the DataGridView set the desired column to read-only.  If there are other specific things you don't want to be able to do let me know and I can explain how to disable them.

That's brilliant, cheers!

Is it possible to also disable and hide the column on the left which allows you to select an entire row?

Yes, that is the RowHeader.  DataGridView.RowHeadersVisible = False will make it go away (I personally hate the rowheader so I never have it visible).
