I'm trying to write an enhanced version of TDBGrid, called TEDBGrid.  One of key features is that display a bitmap when Boolean field for True and another bitmap for False, and toggle it's value through space.  I can display bitmaps, toggle values by keypress successfully, but it will display the textual True or False before my drawing.  This is due to the inplace-edit object of the parent class, and this object is encapslated, so I can't access it directly.  Unfortunately, the inplace-editor is needed to commit my data change by emulate a Enter key.

So, my question is how to make the inplace-editor  respon to my key press and bypass the screen redraw?

If you need to access TInplaceEdit, you must override TCustomGrid.CreateEditor, and do something like this:

function TEDBGrid.CreateEditor: TInplaceEdit;
begin
  FAnotherPointerToEditor := inherited CreateEditor;
  Result := FAnotherPointerToEditor;
end;


You could ofcourse also create a descendant of TInplaceEdit in CreateEditor and return that, giving you all the control of the editor you need.


Regards, Erik.
