The dgcolumniseditable property is managed for fields in the default
column behavior. This is the "standard" behavior for a datagrid.
As soon as you have customized a column, you are detached of this
standard behavior and you have to manage more things by hand.

However even it is not managed, the dgColumnIsEditable exists for the
column and is still usable, so you can easily handle it yourself.

on FillInData pData
      set the enabled of btn "MyPrettyOptionMenu" of me to the
dgColumnIsEditable[the dgColumn of me] of the dgControl of me
end FillInData
