Is it possible to get a selection set from a DBGrid.
By setting dgMultiSelect to True, it is possible to select more than one record. I want to be able to get for example: Field number 3 in the second selected record, or the whole fifth selected record for example.

I run Delphi Developer 2.0 and the table is a DBase-table...

Thanx!

1. See explanation in the file manuals.txt.
2. example:

var I, J: Integer;

  with DBGrid.SelectedRows, Table1 do //the records from the grid
                                        belong to Table1
  for I:=0 to Count-1 do //do some actions only on the selected                            records
  begin
    Find(Items[I],J);
    Bookmark:=items[I];
    Edit;
    //do something with the current selected record
    Post;
  end;

In the multi selected records case, Borland recommands to use the
Find method and not the GotoBookmark method (I Don't know why),
See the manuals.txt file.
