Simple DBGrid question...

Hi,

This is a question about the DBGrid and its multiselect-property...

How can I (for example) copy all records from Table1 to Table2 that are selected in a DBGrid?

Thanx.

Try something like this:
 

  if DBGrid1.SelectedRows.Count>0 then
    with Table1 do
      for i:=0 to DBGrid1.SelectedRows.Count-1 do
      begin
        GotoBookmark(pointer(DBGrid1.SelectedRows.Items[i]));
        table2MyField.value:=Table1MyField.value;
      end;

for j := table1.fields.count-1 do

and this line
GotoBookmark(pointer(DBGrid1.SelectedRows.Items[i]));
should be
table1.GotoBookmark(pointer(DBGrid1.SelectedRows.Items[i]));
   
again complete

if DBGrid1.SelectedRows.Count>0 then
//   with Table1 do //i don't like with's
  for i:=0 to DBGrid1.SelectedRows.Count-1 do
  begin
    table1.GotoBookmark(pointer(DBGrid1.SelectedRows.Items));
    table2.append;
    for j := 0 to table1.fields.count-1 do
      table2.fields[j].value := table1.fields[j],value;
    table2.post;
  end

To be split between marcoszorrilla and kretzschmar

Please leave any comments here within the next seven days.
