    Hello, there is way how to lock and avoid the change by user of width/height of column/row headers in GcSpreadSheet?

    To be more precisely, I mean to lock the width of column header and to lock the height of row header, not the widths of columns theirself neither the heights of rows.

    You can use SetColumnResizable and SetRowResizable methods :

    gcSpreadSheet1.Sheets[0].SetColumnResizable(0, GrapeCity.Windows.SpreadSheet.Data.SheetArea.ColumnHeader, false);
    gcSpreadSheet1.Sheets[0].SetRowResizable(0, GrapeCity.Windows.SpreadSheet.Data.SheetArea.RowHeader, false);

    You can use code as follows:

    gcSpreadSheet1.Sheets[0].SetRowResizable(0, GrapeCity.Windows.SpreadSheet.Data.SheetArea.CornerHeader, false);

    Hello, of course I did this setting before I sent the post but did not work. I got the exception again:

    I also tried:
    gcSpreadSheet1.Sheets[0].SetRowResizable(-1, GrapeCity.Windows.SpreadSheet.Data.SheetArea.CornerHeader, false);
    as for the corner the value is -1. But it does not work neither with 0 nor -1.

    In that case you can hard code the height and width of rowheight and columnwidth. You can check if the row in column header or column in rowheader is being resized and then set the width/height, something like:

     private void gcSpreadSheet1_MouseDown(object sender, MouseButtonEventArgs e)
    HitTestInformation info = gcSpreadSheet1.HitTest(e.GetPosition(gcSpreadSheet1).X, e.GetPosition(gcSpreadSheet1).Y);
    if (info.HitTestType == HitTestType.Corner)

    if (info.HeaderInfo.InColumnResize && info.HeaderInfo.Column == 0)
    e.Handled = true;
    gcSpreadSheet1.Sheets[0].RowHeader.Columns[0].Width = 40;

    if (info.HeaderInfo.InRowResize && info.HeaderInfo.Row == 0)
    e.Handled = true;
    gcSpreadSheet1.Sheets[0].ColumnHeader.Rows[0].Height = 40;
