Check of entered text in TStringGrid

Hi, following:

have a TStringGrid with
 fixedcols:=0;
 fixedrows:=0;
 options:=[goFixedVertLine,
           goFixedHorzLine,
           goVertLine,
           goHorzLine,
           goEditing,
           goAlwaysShowEditor];

If the user set the focus from the actual cell to
somewhere else (to a different cell or eaven to a different control)
I need to check the users input at the cell he leaves this moment.
I try "OnSetEditText", but this event occurs immediately if the user
enters the first Char to the cell. (Ex.: the cells contain date-information,
and I want to check whether the entered date is a correct date...)

It exists a "private" procedure

procedure FocusCell(ACol, ARow: Longint; MoveAnchor: Boolean);

in TCustomGrid, if this whould be only "protected" and "virtual", it would
solve the problm, but unfortunately it isnt.

OK I could start to change VCL-Source for my needs, but first I would ask
if there is a solution without such an "operation".

Hi nmm,

you could do it like this :

* use the OnExit Event (leaving stringgrid)
* OnSelectCell Event (moving to another Cell)

unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,
  StdCtrls, ExtCtrls, TeeProcs, TeEngine, Chart, Buttons, Grids;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    StringGrid1: TStringGrid;
    procedure StringGrid1Exit(Sender: TObject);
    procedure StringGrid1SelectCell(Sender: TObject; ACol, ARow: Integer;
      var CanSelect: Boolean);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation
{$R *.DFM}

procedure TForm1.StringGrid1Exit(Sender: TObject);
// Event when focus goes to another component
begin
  with (Sender as TStringGrid) do
  begin
    if Cells[Col,Row] = 'Correct' then ;
  end;
end;

procedure TForm1.StringGrid1SelectCell(Sender: TObject; ACol,
  ARow: Integer; var CanSelect: Boolean);
// Event when changing cell
begin
  with (Sender as TStringGrid) do
  begin
    // Col and Row contain the Old position
    // ACol and ARow are the new positions
    if Cells[Col,Row] = 'Correct' then ;
  end;
end;

end.

Regards, Zif
