    Locked Property (Cell)
    In This Topic
    Gets or sets whether a cell is marked as locked from editing.
    Public Property Locked As Boolean
    Dim instance As Cell
    Dim value As Boolean
    instance.Locked = value
    value = instance.Locked
    public bool Locked {get; set;}

    Property Value

    Boolean: true if marked as locked; false otherwise

    You can specify that a certain cell is locked; that is, the user cannot edit it. You mark a cell as locked by setting this property to true. Cells are not locked until the SheetView Protect property is also set to true for the sheet. Because the default value of the Protect property is true, unless you have changed the value of the Protect property, when you mark a cell as locked, it is locked and the user cannot edit it. When the Protect property is false, the user can still interact with a cell marked as locked.

    Be aware that the setting for this property can be overridden if a named style is assigned to the cell using the StyleName property, and that named style sets the locked status.

    This example locks the cell to prevent the user from editing the contents of the cell and sets the horizontal and vertical alignment for the contents of the cell.
