How to create an multiple colored Stringgrid ? / How to draw in a StringGrid-Cell ? (Views: 100)


Problem/Question/Abstract:

The standard Delphi-StringGrid can only hold one color for all cells. How to create an multiple colored Stringgrid ?

Answer:

I's easier than you assumed. You must simply override the DrawCell and manuelly draw some data on the canvas of the Stringgrid-Cell .

Feel free to copy and reuse this sweet tiny component....

I hope this article is helpful for you ....

TBWStringGrid = class(TStringGrid)
private
protected
  procedure DrawCell(ACol, ARow: Longint; ARect: TRect;
    AState: TGridDrawState); override;
public
  { just hold some data for each cell }
  CellColor: array of array of TColor;
  CellFontColor: array of array of TColor;
  CellData: array of array of REAL;
  procedure RebuildDynColorArray; // net gut !!!!
  procedure ResizeGrid(ColCount: Integer; RowCount: Integer; ClearAllFields: Boolean =
    TRUE);
  procedure ResetGridCellData;
  procedure ResetGrid;
  procedure UnselectAll;
published
end;

function InvertColor(Color: TColor): TColor;

{ TBWStringGrid }
