There are some very good stringgrid controls like advgrid.zip on the DSP (http://sunsite.icm.edu.pl/delphi). Take a look at them and see if they do what you want to do .

If not you need to get your hands dirty and add the necesary properties to manage the new component as a property of the string grid and to tell the string grid which cells will display this control. Then when the user starts editing a cell with this control in it you will need to show the control in the correct position and allow the user to do their editing in that. SImilarly you will need to control the drawing so that the new control appears in the right way in the grid.

THere are a whole load of stringgrid controls with free source on the DSP as well (just search for 'grid' :-) These will also give you some good pointers.

Cheers,

Raymond.
