I have an unbound DBGrid which I would like users to be able to add new rows to at run-time.  They are able to add the first row, but when they try to click in the next row, nothing happens.  The AllowAddNew property is set to True.  I tried setting the rowbookmark on the unboundadddata event.  When I do that, it allows me to add a new row, but the first row is overwritten by the data entered into the new row.

When you add a new row it erases the data that you are entering in the current row. You have to save the data from the grid to the array you are using to store your data. A good way to do it is to check the CurrentCellModified property to see if you do actually need to save it. Let me know if this helps!

Question is not clear whether DBGrid's "AddNew" method was used to insert a new row in the grid. If not used, row pointer will not get shifted. Hence, rows are overwritten at current row edit.

AllowAddNew only applies when letting the user add records to a recordset object bound to the dbgrid control.

For your purpose, you need to control the grid yourself with the .row property in connection with the rowcolchange event.
