How do you select all rows in the DBGrid?

In stringgrid, you just press Ctrl,Shift and click the top then click the bottom.  

I can't do the same in DBGrid..

thanks , hope you can help me

Hi,
here is how i done it ,enable multiselect (in dbgrid options) you can do below code on double click to selectall then.
(where orders is table1)
procedure TForm1.DBGrid1DblClick(Sender: TObject);
begin    
orders.DisableControls;
    try
      orders.First;
      while not orders.EOF do begin
DBGrid1.SelectedRows.CurrentRowSelected := True;
      orders.Next;
      end;
finally
      orders.EnableControls;
    end;
  end;

hi meikl ,
does bookmark the records mean you can use the stringgrid keystrokes then?
or still have to write seperate code for it?
