Use MouseCoord()..... Somthing from the help file....

Returns the row and column indexes of the cell that contains a point specified in screen coordinates.

type TGridCoord = record

    X: Longint;
    Y: Longint;
  end;

function MouseCoord(X, Y: Integer): TGridCoord;

Description

Call MouseCoord to locate the column and row of the cell which contains a given screen coordinate. Usually, MouseCoord is used to locate the cell which is under the mouse.

You use MouseCoord() in the OnMouseDown() of the DecisionGrid so you check which one is selected.,,,

Hi Viktornet,

i don't think that your answer reflected the question. To get the Value of the selected Cell allways (by click or keyboard) he can use this in DecisionDrawCel Event of the DecisionGrid

procedure TForm1.DecisionGrid1DecisionDrawCell(Sender: TObject; Col,
  Row: Integer; var Value: String; var aFont: TFont; var aColor: TColor;
  AState: TGridDrawState; aDrawState: TDecisionDrawState);
begin
  if (gdselected in aState) then
    edit2.text := DecisionGrid1.Cells[col,row];
end;

But I think he/she will access the sum values of the Row and of the Colum of the selected Cell. Not so Easy.
