A DBGrid is a component derived from TControl.

If you look on the events list of TControl, you will find an OnMouseMove event that you can use to get the X and Y coordinates of the mouse position.

Further, you can use the MouseCoord procedure of the DBGrid Object to transform the X and Y coordinates of the mouse, into the Row and Column of the DBGrid cell.

The only problem that you can have here, is that the OnMouseMove event does not appear in the object inspector events tab. I think you can solve the problem by inserting a line of code assigning your event handler to that event when the form is first created (using the FormCreate procedure).
