Hmm. I don't know. Have you looked for extended freeware components?

Hi TZigan,

This is simple just write your own OnDrawCell procedure place a stringgrid on your form
choose events and double click on OnDrawCell event now place for instance following
code :

procedure TForm1.StringGrid1DrawCell(Sender: TObject; Col, Row: Integer;
  Rect: TRect; State: TGridDrawState);
var tr : TRect;
     ts : string;
     te : extended;
begin
   tr := StringGrid1.CellRect(Col, Row);
   if Odd(Row) then
     begin
        with StringGrid1.Canvas do
           begin
              Brush.Color := clBtnFace;
              Font.Color := clNavy;
              Font.Style := [fsBold];
              FillRect(tr);
             TextOut(tr.Left+2, tr.Top+2, StringGrid1.Cells[Col,Row])
          end;
      end
   else
      begin
        with StringGrid1.Canvas do
           begin
              Brush.Color := clBlue;
              Font.Color := clWhite;
              Font.Style := [fsItalic];
              FillRect(tr);
             TextOut(tr.Left+2, tr.Top+2, StringGrid1.Cells[Col,Row])
          end;
      end;
end;


Hope this helps,

regards,

Cono
