Retreive value from a cell in a dbgrid

To get the value from a stringgrid you can use StringGrid1.cells[Col,Row] to reference the value for any particular cell. How do you achieve the same result for a Dbgrid.

hi again,
please ignore my last comment,you can do these instead:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  //shows the value of the current field
  ShowMessage(DBGrid1.SelectedField.AsString);
  //shows the value of the 5th Column
  ShowMessage(DBGrid1.Columns[4].Field.AsString);
  //shows the value of a specific Field of the current record
  ShowMessage(DBGrid1.Datasource.Dataset.FieldByName('Name').AsString);

end;
