Hi windyui,

it looks like all of yours available points :-)

meikl :-)

may be something like this?

procedure TForm1.DrawGrid1DrawCell(Sender: TObject; ACol, ARow: Integer;
  Rect: TRect; State: TGridDrawState);
begin
  with DrawGrid1 do
  begin
    if gdSelected in State then
      Canvas.Brush.Color := clLime;
    Canvas.FillRect(CellRect(ACol, ARow));
  end;
end;

Hi, Igor
   Yor are almost Right. the Currect answer is
on the ONMOUSEDOWN Event:
begin
 MouseToCell(X,Y,Col,Row);
 with DrawGrid1 do
 begin
   Canvas.Brush.Color := clLime;
   Canvas.FillRect(CellRect(ACol, ARow));
 end;
end;

hi windyui,

not very sure about your solution. Let suppose you need to show any text or graphic in cell. Then you have to write OnDrawCell implementation and the same code for OnMouseDown event. So, OnMouseDown is only partial solution, however OnDrawCell is more logical and universal one.

and I think that you code wouldn't work even if you specify DefaultDrawing = False:

1. MouseToCell(X,Y,Col,Row); should be bellow "with DrawGrid1 do"
2. you can't pass Col and Row as parameters to MouseToCell
3. after Grid will be repainted, all cell's will be white again.

to solve this problem you have to store cell's colors somewhere, let say in matrix.
