If you press  the down/up arrow key, then the selected row will scroll down/up so long how much you press the key .

I wish to scroll just on time for each key press . If I keep pressed the down button then I wish to go to the next record and then stop untill I will press again the key .

How to do that ?

Something like this might work.

var
  bKeyUp: Boolean = True;

procedure TForm1.DBGrid1KeyDown(Sender: TObject; var Key: Word;
  Shift: TShiftState);
begin

  if (Key = VK_DOWN) then begin
    if bKeyUp then
      bKeyUp := False
    else
      Key := 0;
  end;

end;

procedure TForm1.DBGrid1KeyUp(Sender: TObject; var Key: Word;
  Shift: TShiftState);
begin

  bKeyUp := True;

end;

Actually I forgot the KeyUp part of the equtation

var
  bKeyUp: Boolean = True;

procedure TForm1.DBGrid1KeyDown(Sender: TObject; var Key: Word;
  Shift: TShiftState);
begin

  if Key in [VK_DOWN, VK_UP] then begin
    if bKeyUp then
      bKeyUp := False
    else
      Key := 0;
  end;

end;

procedure TForm1.DBGrid1KeyUp(Sender: TObject; var Key: Word;
  Shift: TShiftState);
begin

  bKeyUp := True;

end;
