Look at the OnSelectCell Event for the grid:

procedure TForm1.StringGrid1SelectCell(Sender: TObject; ACol,
  ARow: Integer; var CanSelect: Boolean);
begin
      if Acol=2 then CanSelect:= False;
end;

hi,
sure you can do this:

procedure TForm1.StringGrid1SelectCell(Sender: TObject; ACol,
  ARow: Integer; var CanSelect: Boolean);
begin
// if column 2 is our read only column
if (acol = 2)  then canselect := false;
end;

You could try using the stringrid.selection property.
