Hi all.
I have a StringGrid with two columns: in the first one there is a checkbox in the other one an empty string. I wish user be able to edit the second field only if the checkbox in the same row is checked. In other words, I have to make editable only one cell, not entire column.

Any idea?

Thanks in advance for your help.

You could try this (make the cell editable just if the checkbox is checked)
procedure TForm1.StringGrid1SelectCell(Sender: TObject; ACol, ARow: Integer; var CanSelect: Boolean);
begin
  StringGrid1.Options := StringGrid1.Options - [goEditing];
  if StringGrid1.Objects[ACol-1, ARow] <> nil then
    if StringGrid1.Objects[ACol-1, ARow] is TCheckBox then
      if (StringGrid1.Objects[ACol-1, ARow] as TCheckBox).Checked then
        StringGrid1.Options := StringGrid1.Options + [goEditing]
end;
