Hi tzigan,

you need either to draw the cells yourself or you use TListView (note: the first column can only be left aligned).

Perhaps there are third-party controls. Try:

Which code do you mean? If it is custom draw then use this:

procedure TMainForm.StringGrid1DrawCell(Sender: TObject; ACol,
  ARow: Integer; Rect: TRect; State: TGridDrawState);

var
  S: String;

begin
   with Sender as TStringGrid do
   begin
     S := Cells[ACol, ARow];
     // make the output rectangle a bit smaller to have a small distance from the borders
     InflateRect(Rect, -2, -2);
     // if S is a number then
       DrawText(Canvas.Handle, PChar(S), Length(S), Rect, DT_RIGHT);
     // else
     //   if draw centered then DrawText(Canvas.Handle, PChar(S), Length(S), Rect, DT_CENTER)
     //                    else DrawText(Canvas.Handle, PChar(S), Length(S), Rect, DT_LEFT);
   end;
end;


Assign an OnDrawCell handler and leave DefaultDrawing = True to cause the tree to paint selection and focus rectangle.
