I am having a problem with making my gridview cells be placed in edit mode. I have set the properties on the gridView that I thought would make the gridview editable. However, I cannot type into the GridView cells.
This is for a windows application. So I would need an example or tutorial on using GridViews on a windows application.
What am I missing?

I am using entity framework to load the datasource of the GridView. When I try to modify a cell, it does not let me enter any data. I know I have turned on the properties needed.

I found the answer-

See article
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5793619/binding-entity-framework-objects-to-a-datagridview-c-sharp?rq=1

Is that it is creating an anonymous type, and anonymous types are immutable - that is read only. This is why your changes do not get reflected in either the new type or in the original EF object.
