The only way of doing that is doing an Abort in OnInsert of the TTable, but that is what you don't want.

The other option is setting your DBGrid to ReadOnly or RowSelect...

Otherwise you have to derive a new TDBGrid.

It is not impossible but it will make you code messy:
Track the key code in keydown event, something like this:
  if key= VK_INSERT then key:=0;
  if key= VK_DOWN and atBottom then key:= 0
  ........
There is no such method/property as "atBottom" in dbgrid, you have to write some code to check whether you are at the end of file position.

If I understand you correct you want to disable the user to add records to the TDBGrid but they must be able to edit them.  And you also don't want to disable the insert from the TTable component ...

Then the only thing I can think of is check the OnKeyDown event of the TDBGrid to check if the Insert button on your keyboard is pressed.

if Key = 45 then
  Cancel the insert that the user wants to do ...

45 is the value for the Insert key and KEY is the variable passed to the KeyDown event.

Hope it works

Elfrieda :)  PS :  Why don't you want to work with the TTable
