Hello,

I have a datagridview with 8 columns.

2 columns are created manually and the other 6 are from a DataReader assigned to the datagridviews datasource.

The 2 columns I have set the property ReadOnly = false; because the user must enter data, but the other 6 columns are editable too, how can I stop that? User is not allowed to enter data here. How can I access the 6  columns after the DataReader is bound to the datagridviews datasource?
