I want to manually set the Selection property of a TStringGrid. Selection is of type TGridRect.
I have tried the following:

StringGrid1.Selection := Rect(1,1,5,5);

but get the error: "TGridRect and TRect not identical types"

so, is it possible to set a selection manually?
should be an easy one.

Yes but function Rect return TRect not TGridRect.
TRect have integer values but TGridRect have longint values.

try this :

var MyRect : TGridRect;

begin
  MyRect.Left :=1;
  MyRect.Top:=1;
  MyRect.Right:= 5;
  MyRect.Bottom := 5;
  StringGrid1.Selection := MyRect;
end;
