Make a cell read only to user

I would like to make a cell read only for the user of my application. I have tried to set enabled property to false, however, the user cannot select the cell and thus cannot copy the value if they want to. I have also set the ReadOnly property to false, but in doing that I cannot change any of the values which I need to do via the code. Is there a way for me to set the cell so that I can continue to change other property/values of the cell via the application code, and yet keep the user from changing the cell, and allow the user to select the cell to copy its value. Thanks.

I just discovered that I can set a property on the Grid called IgnoreReadOnly that will allow me to set ReadOnly and still allow me to change values programatically.

You shoul dtoggle the value of IgnoreReadOnly while you make your changes programatically (as IgnoreReadOnly=true will also allow your users to change values too.)
