Dear Friend,

You can not disable a datagridview row. The only thing you can do is make it readonly.

Private Sub Button8_Click(ByVal sender As Object, _
    ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button8.Click
    For Each band As DataGridViewBand In dataGridView.Columns
        band.ReadOnly = True
End Sub

In edit mode add this line:-

DataGridView1.ReadOnly = True[^]

try this:-[^]

Please try these link:- To make any column readonly in Datagrid[^][^][^]

I hope this will help you out.
