DBGrid in d3

How do i change a (non selected) row's color in a DBGrid component?

How can I do this automatically, based on a specific field's value?

e.g. I want all employee's records in an grid to be shown in red if the employee is a manager.

Connect the DBGrid to the COUNTRY.DB from the DBDEMOS and write the following:


procedure TForm1.DBGrid1DrawDataCell(Sender: TObject; const Rect: TRect;
  Field: TField; State: TGridDrawState);
begin
  if not (gdSelected in State) then
  with DBGrid1.Canvas do
  begin
    if Table1.FieldbyName('Continent').Value='North America' then
    begin
      brush.Color:=clRed;
      font.Color:=clWhite;
    end
    else
    begin
      brush.Color:=clWhite;
      font.Color:=clBlack;
    end;
      FillRect(Rect);
      TextOut(Rect.Left,Rect.Top,Field.Value);
  end;
end;
