Use the function to show or hide the button for specific rows. For example, the UI component lists online orders and allows users to edit them. The Cancel button should allow users to cancel their orders. However, completed orders should not be canceled. The visible function in this case may look as follows:

jQuery
JavaScript
$(function () {
    $("#dataGridContainer").dxDataGrid({
        // ...
        columns: [{
            type: "buttons",
            buttons: [{
                text: "Cancel",
                visible: function (e) {
                    return !e.row.isEditing && !e.row.data.isCompleted;
