If several cells are checked at once, the method will return true, if there is at least one locked cell among the specified cells.

info

Starting with v4.1, the reference to a cell or a range of cells can be specified in the following format:

const cellsLocked = spreadsheet.isLocked("sheet1!A2"); 

where sheet1 is the name of the tab.

In case the name of the tab isn't specified, the method will check the cell(s) of the active tab.
