RE. Am looking for a TDBGrid component with enhanced features

I am looking for a TDBGrid component that i can set column cells to
comboboxes and checkboxes. I have looked but unable to find any.
any shareware would be fine. thanx.

Some time ago I downloaded a really nice document that tells you how to
do this yourself! Unfortunately, I did not record the URL where I found
it! At the end of the document titled "HOW TO PUT COMPONENTS INTO A
GRID" is the author's name:

Alec Bergamini, (cserve addr 75664,1224),company Out & About Productions

I would try to e-mail him and see if he can send a copy to you.

You can find a lot of DBGrids and StringGrids components in following
sites:
   ftp://sunsite.icm.edu.pl/pub/delphi/freeware   or
   .................................../shareware  or
   www.doit.com/delphi   or
   www.teleport.com/~ol/swfw   or
   www.hea.ie/pub/simtel/win3/delphi,

but, as for me - I still have'n found and good commertial components for
DBGrid (fast, reliable, convenient, without bugs (or with source code),
have a possibilityes of multi row selecting with different colors;
user-defining editors for columns (like a check-box); caption and column
width changing in run-time and state saving..... )

If you find, let me know, please.

The standard DBGrid already does comboboxes. There are some 3rd party
products that do checkboxes, although I think that if you are clever
enough, you could fake one using some of the OnDraw... methods.

To make a combobox in a grid cell, just select a LookupField as the
column field. Or for fixed values, assign string to the Picklist in
the Columns Editor.

I don't know any shareware unfortunately, but InfoPower from Woll2Woll
is *very* good! You can download a trial version from

Good luck!

We have written a Delphi grid component that is in its first round of external
testing right now. Most of the suggestions mentioned so far are based on
inheriting from the VCL grids.  This grid is written from scratch.
It allows you to have both bound and unbound columns at the same time and to
control the appearance attributes down to the column level (or cell level at
run time).  The one thing it does not do is have check boxes.

If you are interested I am keeping a mailing list (especially if you are
willing to try out the test version and give feedback).

And what I need to do if I don't know the type (and class name) of field
during design-time, I only know the FieldName at DesignTime, but in
Run-time I can get the type information?

What I want is a DBGrid (or DBCtrlGrid) component that can accept fields
from multiple datasources, especially data with a master-slave
relationship. Throw in calculated fields too. (Right now, I have to
combine the data together with a SQL command and show the cursor; while
this method does work, it obviously would run faster if the tables could
be displayed directly.)
