Well, I've made a data-aware component, but if I put it on the grid, I get the message:'can't place this dataware component on the grid'. Zif.

in the constructor put this:
 ControlStyle := ControlStyle + [csReplicatable];
 
Besides this you need to do something on the OnDatachange
or updatedata or in the paint routine (depending on the kind of control)
because you need to check if it's the focussed control (active record) or not.
So if the datalink.dataset.field<>nil use the value, otherwise use the text, or caption.
See for a simple example the vcl sourcecode: DbCtrls:TdbText;
That one will explain most of ot
