Allow editing of only certain columns

    I added `allowEdition: true` to the layout engine config and it works fine.
    But, I only want users to change values of certain columns.
    How can I disable editing for rest of the grid and enable it only for certain columns?

    const engine = new GC.Spread.Views.DataView.Plugins.GridLayoutEngine({allowGrouping: true, grouping, allowSorting: true, allowEditing: true});

    You can apply allowEditing: false to the column definition for those columns you don't want to allow editing by the user, as in this demo for Editor Mode. Note that the "Id" column is not editable in the demo:
    var columns = [{
    id: 'id',
    caption: 'Id',
    dataField: 'id',
    width: 80,
    allowEditing: false
