If you are using Paradox tables set the RecNo property of the TTable component to move to the record (9th or whatever)

Or you can look at the MoveBy method of TDataset

Try to create your own component

type
  TMyDBGrid = class(TDBGrid)
  public
    procedure ScrollToFirstVisible;
    procedure ScrollToLastVisible;
    procedure ScrollToNVisibleRow(N: Integer);
  end;

procedure TMyDBGrid.ScrollToFirstVisible;
begin
  with DataLink do
    if Active then DataSet.MoveBy(-ActiveRecord);
end;

procedure TMyDBGrid.ScrollToLastVisible;
begin
  with DataLink do
    if Active then DataSet.MoveBy(RecordCount-ActiveRecord-1);
end;

procedure TMyDBGrid.ScrollToNVisibleRow(N: Integer);
begin
  with DataLink do
    if Active then
    begin
      if N < 1 then N := 1;
      if N > RowCount then N := RowCount;
      DataSet.MoveBy(-ActiveRecord-1+N);
    end;
end;

I am sorry for my little explaination!
Now I explain it detailedly.I hope you can help me!
I want to make a touch-screen program.
Because My touch-screen is 17",it must display two dbgrids
in one screen,and that two dbgrids use the same dataset.
When I click the next or prev,The first dbgrid move 10,
and the second dbgrid move next 10.
If I use moveby, that two dbgrids display the same record.
That is not my want.
So I want to  know the last record that is displayed in the first dbgrid to transfer to the second dbgrid.

can you tell me how to get the field from dbgrid and not from
dataset?

Can you tell me how can I do that?

Try to create your own component

type
  TMyDBGrid = class(TDBGrid)
  Published
   Property Toprow;
   Property VisibleRowCount;
  end;

These Propertys came from TCustomGrid. You are informed by Query/Table Afterscroll that the position has changed. By checking dbgrid.Toprow you can see if the grid has scrolled.

You could use two datasets from the one table. This way you can easily keep track
of leap-frogging dbgrids.
