Load picture in DrawGrid

HHHHHHEEEEEELLLLLLLPPPPPP

I have got a DrawGrid (size: 10 x 10), and I want to load a picture for example into cell [2,8]. How can I do this? Or do I have to use a StringGrid for this kind of jobs.

DrawGrid1.Image.LoadFromFile('pic.bmp'); DOES NOT WORK !!!

Please help me.

Stefan.

Hi roosiedb,

Haven't worked it out totally, but I think you can manage from here....

unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    DrawGrid1: TDrawGrid;
    procedure DrawGrid1DrawCell(Sender: TObject; Col, Row: Longint;
      Rect: TRect; State: TGridDrawState);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

procedure TForm1.DrawGrid1DrawCell(Sender: TObject; Col, Row: Longint;
  Rect: TRect; State: TGridDrawState);
var
  bmp : TBitmap;
begin
  with Canvas do
  begin
    FillRect(Rect);
         try
          bmp := TBitmap.Create;
          bmp.Assign('your bitmap');
          Draw(Rect.Left, Rect.Top, bmp);
        finally
          bmp.Free;
        end
  end;
end;
end.
