Hide the Command Column Button in a Specific Record

16 Aug 20234 minutes to read

Command Columns can be used to perform CRUD operation in Grid records. For some specific records, these editing actions can be prevented by hiding the command buttons. i.e., some records can be prevented from being edited, some records can be prevented from being deleted. This can be achieved by hiding the command buttons in RowDataBound event of the DataGrid component.

This is demonstrated in the following sample code where the RowDataBound event is triggered when record is created. Based on record details, you can add specific class name to that row and hide the command buttons using CSS styles.

@using Syncfusion.Blazor.Grids

<SfGrid DataSource="@Orders" AllowPaging="true" Height="315">
    <GridEvents RowDataBound="RowBound" TValue="Order"></GridEvents>
    <GridEditSettings AllowAdding="true" AllowEditing="true" AllowDeleting="true"></GridEditSettings>
        <GridColumn Field=@nameof(Order.OrderID) HeaderText="Order ID" IsPrimaryKey="true" TextAlign="TextAlign.Right" Width="120"></GridColumn>
        <GridColumn Field=@nameof(Order.CustomerID) HeaderText="Customer Name" Width="120"></GridColumn>
        <GridColumn Field=@nameof(Order.OrderDate) HeaderText=" Order Date" EditType="EditType.DatePickerEdit" Format="d" TextAlign="TextAlign.Right" Width="130"></GridColumn>
        <GridColumn Field=@nameof(Order.Freight) HeaderText="Freight" Format="C2" TextAlign="TextAlign.Right" Width="120"></GridColumn>
        <GridColumn HeaderText="Manage Records" Width="150">
                <GridCommandColumn Type="CommandButtonType.Edit" ButtonOption="@(new CommandButtonOptions() { IconCss = "e-icons e-edit", CssClass = "e-flat" })"></GridCommandColumn>
                <GridCommandColumn Type="CommandButtonType.Delete" ButtonOption="@(new CommandButtonOptions() { IconCss = "e-icons e-delete", CssClass = "e-flat" })"></GridCommandColumn>
                <GridCommandColumn Type="CommandButtonType.Save" ButtonOption="@(new CommandButtonOptions() { IconCss = "e-icons e-update", CssClass = "e-flat" })"></GridCommandColumn>
                <GridCommandColumn Type="CommandButtonType.Cancel" ButtonOption="@(new CommandButtonOptions() { IconCss = "e-icons e-cancel-icon", CssClass = "e-flat" })"></GridCommandColumn>

            Freight = 2.1 * x,
            OrderDate = DateTime.Now.AddDays(-x),
            Verified = (new bool[] { true, false })[new Random().Next(2)],
