Now that Borland has removed any examples from the Help system I get a little lost on how to do things -- even the most simple.  How do you select a series of cells in a TStringGrid programmatically?

The Selection property takes a TGridRect parameter for highlighting the correct value you moron.

To access its member you can reference the various properties or maybe right a handy helper routine like:

function TForm1.DoSelect( l, t, r, b : integer ) : TGridRect;
begin
  with Result do begin
    Left := l;
    Top := t;
    Right := r;
    Bottom := b;
  end;
end;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  StringGrid1.Selection := DoSelect( 1,2 , x2,y2 );
end;
