why are columns still enabled when set to false?

experimental web page with gridview
columns 1,2,3,8,9,10,11,12 should be disabled on Saturday or Sunday.
columns 1,2,3 are not enabled in edit mode but all columns are enabled after 3 when it is Saturday or sunday.
why do the first three work but the next ones don't?

change all fields to be asp:templatefield and the enable and disable work just fine
only using a boundfields and enable causes a problem if you intermix enable and disabled fields.

do you want to make it visible or invisible ?

as you said enable or disable will still be seen on the screen, try using the visible property.

Have you confirmed that column 3 does have the text you are expecting? From the your sqldatasource, column four matches starttime.

You should try to disable the controls in the cells, and not the cells.

have a breakpoint In and know what is in each column, when I added autoedit button every thing moves back one because button is now 0.

bob learned

With auto-generated columns, try setting the column read-only, instead of the cell.
