NVM I figured it out (again). Given that lGridDataA is a script local containing an array of all the datagrid arrays: The getProp handler needs to be written like this:

getProp maingriddata [pKey]
   if pKey is not empty then
      return lGridDataA [pKey]
      return lGridDataA
   end if
end maingridData
