I want to allow the user to click on a cell of a standard delphi dbgrid and drag the cell and drop the contents to another component like edit or listbox. Can anyone help me.
Thank you

HI, clekkas,
Try this (I suppose you know what to do with OnDragOver and DragDrop events):
procedure TForm1.DBGrid1MouseUp(Sender: TObject; Button: TMouseButton;
  Shift: TShiftState; X, Y: Integer);
 if ((Button=mbLeft) and (ssCtrl in Shift)) then
   DBGrid1.BeginDrag(False, 20);
