    Property Value

    Boolean: true if cells marked as locked are uneditable; false otherwise

    You can specify that certain cells are locked; that is, the user cannot edit them. In addition, locked cells can display different background and text colors. You mark cells as locked using the Lock property. Cells are not locked until the Protect property is set to true. Because the default value is true, unless you have changed the value of the Protect property, when you mark cells as locked, they are immediately locked.

    When the Protect property is set to false, the user can still interact with cells marked as locked.

    This example sets cells that are marked as locked to still be editable by the user.
    fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Protect = false;
    FpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Protect = False
