It exists different possibilities depending the conditions you need
for locking a cell.

A possible solution is to trap in the datagrid group script, the
EditCellOfIndex message sent when one is double clicking on a cell.

Here is an example for locking a cell if it contains the value "Locked cell":

on EditCellOfIndex pTheColumn, pTheIndex
  if GetDataOfIndex(pTheIndex, pTheColumn) is "Locked cell" then exit

  pass EditCellOfIndex
end EditCellOfIndex
