Enable/Disable Grid and its actions

You can enable/disable the Grid and its actions by applying/removing corresponding CSS styles.

To enable/disable the grid and its actions, follow the given steps:

Step 1:

Create CSS class with custom style to override the default style of Grid.

    .disablegrid {
        pointer-events: none;
        opacity: 0.4;
    }
    .wrapper {
        cursor: not-allowed;
    }

Step 2:

Add/Remove the CSS class to the Grid in the click event handler of Button.

    document.getElementById('primarybtn').addEventListener('click', () => {
        if (grid.element.classList.contains('disablegrid')) {
            grid.element.classList.remove('disablegrid');
            document.getElementById("GridParent").classList.remove('wrapper');
        }
        else {
            grid.element.classList.add('disablegrid');
            document.getElementById("GridParent").classList.add('wrapper');
        }
    });

In the below demo, the button click will enable/disable the Grid and its actions.
