Database Programming

Coloring selected Row in a dbgrid by Svanhooft
Posted: 24 Jul 02 (Edited 6 Oct 02)


Many times the question is asked, but their is not much helpfull code. This code will do the trick.
Put the code in the onDrawColumnCell event and watch it happen

procedure TForm1.DBGrid1DrawColumnCell(Sender: TObject; const Rect: TRect;
  DataCol: Integer; Column: TColumn; State: TGridDrawState);
  if (gdSelected in State) then
     DBGrid1.Canvas.Font.Color := clPurple;
     DBGrid1.Canvas.Brush.Color := clLime;
     DBGrid1.Canvas.TextOut(Rect.Left, Rect.Top,Column.Field.AsString);
     DBGrid1.Canvas.Font.Color := clBlue;
     DBGrid1.Canvas.Brush.Color := clAqua;
     DBGrid1.Canvas.TextOut(Rect.Left, Rect.Top,Column.Field.AsString);
