I am using Template Field in my GridView, there are ItemTemplate and EditTemplate in it.
<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="YM1 Actual">
                    <ItemTemplate>
                        <asp:Label ID="lblProcessActualSelYM1" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("PROCESS_ACTUAL_SEL_YM1") %>'></asp:Label>
                    </ItemTemplate>

                    <EditItemTemplate>
                        <asp:DropDownList ID="ddlProcessActualSelYM1" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("PROCESS_ACTUAL_SEL_YM1") %>' CssClass="selDropDownList"></asp:DropDownList>
                    </EditItemTemplate>
                </asp:TemplateField>

Open in new window


However, under certain condition, say, if I have a status field store in my database, and if its value is set to 2, then I want to disable that EditTemplate, so that when user click the Edit button, it will only show the ItemTemplate.

In other words, it should be just work like the following code
 
<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="YM1 Actual">

  <ItemTemplate>
    <asp:Label ID="lblProcessActualSelYM1" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("PROCESS_ACTUAL_SEL_YM1") %>'></asp:Label>
  </ItemTemplate>

</asp:TemplateField>

the simplest way would be to hide the edit button when the value is 2
you can trap that in thr rowdatabound event of the gridview,
check for the value if it is two and if it is hide the edit button

You know, other column in that row still allowed to edit..
only one column is not allowed.

If I cannot solve this, I think the best workaround is to
create a label control
and set the visible value of the drop down list and the label control

Right this code in the GridView1_RowDataBound Event and hide the column. In Controls(6) the 6th is number of that column to be Hide on value in database is 2 to disable editing.

If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.Header Then
         e.Row.Controls(6).Visible = False
        End If
        If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then
         e.Row.Controls(6).Visible = False
       End If
