in your ondrawcolumncell add :
  //highlight the focused lines
  if ((gdFocused in State) then
  begin
    theGrid.Canvas.Brush.Color := clYourColor;
    theGrid.Canvas.FillRect(Rect);
  end
  else
  begin
    theGrid.Canvas.Brush.Color := clBtnFace;
    theGrid.Canvas.FillRect(Rect);
  end;

  // make the output rectangle a bit smaller to have a small distance from the borders
  InflateRect(Rect, -2, -2);

  //draw the text right or left aligned
  if (Col > 0) and not (gdFixed in state) then
    DrawText(theGrid.Canvas.Handle, PChar(S), Length(S), Rect, DT_RIGHT)
  else
    DrawText(theGrid.Canvas.Handle, PChar(S), Length(S), Rect, DT_LEFT);

or to let delphi draw the text for you call DefaultDrawColumnCell after the fillrect

Hi Jeurk & Zaferms,

There is an easier way to do it.

procedure TForm1.DBGrid1DrawColumnCell(Sender: TObject; const Rect: TRect;
  DataCol: Integer; Column: TColumn; State: TGridDrawState);
begin
  if (gdSelected) in State then
  begin
    DBGrid1.Canvas.Brush.Color := clMaroon;
    DBGrid1.DefaultDrawColumnCell (Rect, DataCol, Column, State);
  end;
end;

There is no need to use the DrawText, you can let Delphi do the drawing by using the DefaultDrawColumnCell.

euh, and what is different with what I say ?
That's what I say at the end, that we can use DefaultDrawColumnCell to draw the text. I left the drawtext, to show how to do it.
But I agree, what you say is somewhat cleaner...

Jeurk,

If you do it like I showed, there is no need to call the DBGrid1.Canvas.FillRect(Rect) Method.

So you save some lines of code ;-)
