SYSK 298: WPF: Control Whether a Grid’s Cell Is Editable in XAML


Say, you’re using a grid control to display some data, and you’re allowing users to modify data under certain circumstances.  Based on a business rule, you’d like to “lock” a certain record (i.e. make it read-only).


 


If you’re using data binding it’s quite straight forward.  In my example, I’m using an XML data source and a TextBox control to let users view/modify the data.  I use submitted XML data attribute to control whether the record should be editable or not:


 


<GridViewColumn.CellTemplate>


<DataTemplate>


            <TextBox Text={Binding XPath=@type} IsReadOnly={Binding XPath=@submitted} Width=100px/>


</DataTemplate>


</GridViewColumn.CellTemplate>
