TStringGrid removal of selected field highlight..

have two or more StringGrids (delphi 1.0), and when I move from  one to
another, the latest accessed cell in the one I left is highlighted. I don´t
want that.
Anyone know how I solve this?
Thanks
Jorgen

You must set property DefaultDrawning to false and assign you'r own procedure for OnDrawCell event.

This is example of that.

procedure TForm1.StringGrid1DrawCell(Sender: TObject; Col, Row: Longint;
  Rect: TRect; State: TGridDrawState);

  procedure MyDrawCell( S : TStringGrid );
  var Text: array[0..255] of Char;
  begin
    if (Col<S.FixedCols) or (Row<S.FixedRows) then
      S.Canvas.Brush.Color := S.FixedColor
    else
      S.Canvas.Brush.COlor := S.Color;
    S.Canvas.FillRect(Rect);

    StrPCopy(Text, IntToSTr(col)+'-'+IntToStr(row){StringGrid1.Cells[Col, Row]});
    ExtTextOut(S.Canvas.Handle, Rect.Left + 2, Rect.Top + 2, ETO_CLIPPED or
      ETO_OPAQUE, @Rect, Text, StrLen(Text), nil);

    if S.Ctl3D then
    begin
      S.Canvas.Pen.Color := clBtnHighlight;
      S.Canvas.Polyline([Point(Rect.Left, Rect.Bottom - 1), Rect.TopLeft, Point(Rect.Right, Rect.Top)]);
    end;

    if (S.Row=Row) and (S.Col=Col) and (gdFocused in State) then
      S.Canvas.DrawFocusRect(Rect);

  end;

begin
  if Sender is TStringGrid then
    MyDrawCell( Sender as TStringGrid );
end;
