Hi,

i got an mdb access file, and i'm linking to it using a Tdatasource wich is connected to a TadoQuerry
and the dbgrid is connected to the Tdatasource

so i get my *wanted info* based on a querry and this is displayed in the dbgrid.

The columns are automaticly put in some order and the widths are also done automaticly, how can i do this manually io defining them in design time so they are for example all 50 pixels wide ?

i tried serveral things :
adding some columns using columns editor  but then my info wasn't displayed anymore

activating the querry in design time and modifying the width but then i couldn't change all of the columns (those strings defined in the access file 255 chars)
and also when i ran the program it was all reset.

so my question is how can i predefine these column widths and the order they appear in etc

thanks

try using TClientDataset


you can use EmptyDataSet,FieldDefs,CreateDataset to create the Dataset.

This code will change all the colums in dbgrid to 50 width

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  I : integer;
begin
  for I := 0 to DBGrid1.Columns.Count -1 do
    DBGrid1.Columns[I].Width := 50;
end;

and about the fileds order
you can change it from the sql statment
don't 'use select *',
use the field names
'select field1, field3, field2 from table'
