Using ReadOnly with a DataGridView?

The following code isn't working:

dataGridView1.ReadOnly = True
dataGridView1.Columns(1).ReadOnly = False

Open in new window


The above code doesn't allow me to enter data manually in Column 1 of the dgv.

I have a dgv that contains 15 columns and I only want to 2 of them to be able to enter data manually. I'm doing the above method just to save lines of code (not that big of deal really). Just wondered if there was a way of doing this without having to set all the Columns.ReadOnly = True?

Thanks!

A cell is read-only if the value of the ReadOnly property is true for the cell, the cell's row, the cell's column, or the DataGridView.

Implies that a cell is read-only if it or any of it's parent containers have the ReadOnly property set to true.

So to answer your question directly, you will have to explicitly define the ReadOnly property for each of the cells that you want to be read-only and set the ReadOnly property of the GridView to false.
