Conditionally Make the DropDownList Editor Readonly

Environment

Product Progress Kendo UI Grid
Progress Kendo UI version Created with the 2017.3.913 version

Description

How can I make the drop-down editor readonly based on a condition in the Kendo UI Grid?

Solution

  1. Handle the edit event of the Grid.
  2. In the event handler and based on a condition, use the readonly method.
<script src="https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/content/shared/js/products.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<div id="example">
    <div id="grid"></div>

    <script>
        var categories = [{
            "value": 1,
            "text": "Beverages"
        }, {
            "value": 2,
            "text": "Condiments"
        }, {
            "value": 3,
            "text": "Confections"
        }, {
            "value": 4,
            "text": "Dairy Products"
        }, {
            "value": 5,
            "text": "Grains/Cereals"
        }, {
            "value": 6,
            "text": "Meat/Poultry"
        }, {
            "value": 7,
            "text": "Produce"
        }, {
            "value": 8,
            "text": "Seafood"
        }];
