I know this question has been asked before but I don't have the time to search the 4000 previous questions.
I need to change the color of one cell in a DBGrid depending on what data is in the cell. If it is 'Y' i need the cell to be Red, else white. I don't want to change the whole coloumn. I know how to do that. i just want to change the one cell, or multiple cells if there is more than one record that has 'Y' for that field.
Thanks

first set DBGrid 'Default Drawin' property to False and write this code on DrawColumnCell :

procedure TfrmPenjualan.JurnalGridDrawColumnCell(Sender: TObject;
          const Rect: TRect; DataCol: Integer; Column: TColumn;
          State: TGridDrawState);
begin
     with DataModule1 do
          if  (qryItemPenjualanJUMLAH.Value > 20 ) then
               JurnalGrid.Canvas.Font.COLOR := clRed;

     JurnalGrid.DefaultDrawColumnCell(Rect, DataCol, Column, State);        
end;
