Select all rows in DBGrid

Posted on 2001-06-18

Hi Experts,

I'm using a DBGrid in an application, with the Multiselect and Rowselect properties set to true. So users can select multiple rows with the Ctrl key pressed.

Now I want to place a "Select all" button on my form as a special service to the users. When a user clicks that button all the rows in the DBGrid should be selected.

Is this possible?

Hope this procedure helps!!!


You will need to set the multiselect property to true.

(Expand the options property to find multiselect.)

procedure TForm1.SelectAll;
 with dbgrid1.DataSource.Dataset do
     if (BOF and EOF) then Exit;
       while not EOF do
         dbgrid1.SelectedRows.CurrentRowSelected := True;
