Hi experts,

How to select / highlight a set of continued records in a DBGrid by mouse clicks and let the program know what are selected? I can't find anything representing the selected row numbers in the DBGrid.

Thank you.

Use the SelBookmarks property. This comes directly from the online help:

Returns a collection of bookmarks for all selected records in the DBGrid control.

Syntax

object.SelBookmarks

The object placeholder represents an object expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list.

Remarks

When a record is selected in the DBGrid control, its bookmark is appended to the collection returned by the SelBookmarks property.  For example, if you create a clone of the Recordset object created by the DBGrid control, you can process individual data records by repositioning the cloned Recordset with bookmarks taken from the SelBookmarks collection.

Hi y96andha...(Sorry, not your first name :-)),

Thank you for your reply and help. You may know I am a beginer...I still not really understand:

1) When select the rows in a DBGrid, I can't find the way like sececting continued files in Windows by Shift + Click.
2) What the DBGrid.SelBookmarks really represents? Is that the row numbers or need to add another dot and somthing like DBGrid.SelBookmarks(i).row

Cheers.

Victor

This is a code sample to get a selected record:

dim rs as recordset
rs = dbgrid1.recordset.clone
rs.bookmark = dbgrid1.selbookmarks(1)

rs is now positioned at the first selected record of the DBGrid.
