Hi All

                      Can anyone suggest me how to change dbgrid selection bar color.
                   Default is dark blue.
                   My problem
                   *********
                        I am changing certain grid column colors for certain conditions.
                        I given rowselect = true
                        Now the colored columns are not readable when the selection bar is there. If I change the
                   selection bar color to some light color or transparent then I can view those columns

   Note: I would like to change it for a particular grid , not all the grids

                   thanks in advance

I use this method :

procedure TfBukuCustomer.GridDrawColumnCell(Sender: TObject;
  const Rect: TRect; DataCol: Integer; Column: TColumn;
  State: TGridDrawState);
begin
  if dmManager.qPiutangCustSt.Value then Grid.Canvas.Font.Color := clRed;
    Grid.DefaultDrawColumnCell(Rect, DataCol, Column, State);
end;


it makes the row color to red if St in qPiutangCust true
and back to white / default if ST false

Hope this helps
