I have a Column in my DGV that is defined as a DataGridViewCheckBoxCell. My query that is bound to the DGV looks like this:

SELECT      0 AS Selected, EquipID, EquipName, Model, SN, Accredited, Description FROM CalEquip ORDER BY TypeID, EquipName

The first column acts as my CheckBox Column in my DGV. My problem is that even when I manually set the ReadOnly property to False, I run the app and when I try to check/uncheck the column, it won't allow me to. When I go back into the designer and look at that Column, it shows the ReadOnly property is True. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks,
