If it is for a normal grid you could do something like this

procedure TForm1.StringGrid1SelectCell(Sender: TObject; ACol,  ARow: Integer; var CanSelect: Boolean);
begin
  CanSelect := ACol = YourCol;
end;

I think that approach also won't highlight the fixed-row (in the most left part of DBGrid) as when we manually hold ctrl key and click the fixed-row to select rows.

I'm so sorry, that is a wrong post. Actually I want to post it in another topic.

My real comment is ... ... ...,
My type of grid is DBGrid. I didn't find a OnSelectCell event in DBGrid.

What should I do now?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Oops, sorry. The event is not available on the DBGrid. What you ask is not possible with a DBGrid.
