As far as I know there is no way to lock a column in a data grid.
The only trick I see is to use two datagrids. One for the fix column
and the other one for the scrolling columns.
By synchonizing the scrollbar of the both, you could obtain what you want.

The dgHScroll property could be helpful in this task, by reading the
value of the scrolling DG and apply this value to the locked DG.
